Helping Leicester during lockdown

Wow what a few weeks it has been in Leicester. With all the national coverage going on it feels like everybody is looking at us and how we respond to this second wave. 

5000-1 prefer to focus on the positives our great city has to offer and highlight a really good charity this month that directly impacts our hospitals. 

So we've partnered up with The Leicester Hospitals Charity for July in the effort to raise funds for all that goes into making our hospitals run effectively. They raise funds for The Royal Infirmary, Leicester General Hospital and Glenfield Hospital.

From helping to buy extra or improved clinical equipment, to providing those little extras that help to make our hospitals more comfortable for patients, visitors and staff, they help to improve our hospitals above and beyond what the NHS provides.

You can donate directly to them at the following link:

Or you can head to our shop and make a purchase that will send 50p per bag their way to help continue their great efforts. 

Whatever you decide to do we hope you'll agree that this charity is worthy of your donation and as part of the foxes nation they deserve recognition.

UPDATE: 4th September 2020 - We've raised £500 for The Leicester Hospitals Trust through our coffee this summer. This brings our total to £1,000 since we started. Thank you to all our customers for helping us achieve this.
