Farleys Solicitors were delighted to team up with the group of local Lancashire firms rallying to support the region’s key workers as they continue to battle coronavirus on the front line at Royal Blackburn Hospital.

Our friends at Priory Rentals made the fantastic gesture of loaning 50 of their campervans for use as temporary accommodation for doctors and nurses at the hospital, allowing them to rest and recuperate without the risk of passing on the infection to their families at home.

Other businesses have been chipping in with donations to keep the motorhomes supplied with water, everyday items and tea and coffee and the team at Farleys’ Blackburn office have been collecting toiletry items for care packages which have been donated to the key workers who do such a fantastic job everyday, but moreso at the moment through this pandemic, with the added stress of being away from their families.

With such a generous donation from Priory Rentals also comes an additional cost of cleaning the campervans so that they can be returned to normal use, and the Farleys Foundation (the charitable foundation set up by the firm), is making a financial donation towards the clean up of the vehicles.

Jane Chadwick from Farleys’ team commented,

We are proud to be part of the Lancashire business community pulling together and supporting the community through the pandemic and we are glad to be able to make this donation which we hope will go some way to helping our region’s key workers.

Emma Carter from Priory Rentals commented, “It’s really important to us that we help our local community and do whatever we can to come through the other side of this pandemic.

“We have been overwhelmed with the support of local businesses such as Farleys and many others, such as AE Yates Ltd, who donated a 1000 litre fresh water container enabling us to fill the motorhomes’ fresh water tanks on site.

“It’s been a team, family and friends effort for Priory, ensuring that these motorhomes are serviced 7 days a week. Without them it would not have been possible.”
