Fairy Bricks to distribute 30,000 LEGO sets to children of health workers

The charity Fairy Bricks will distribute 30,000 LEGO sets to the children of doctors, nurses and other NHS workers.

Fairy Bricks, the charity that distributes LEGO sets to children in hospital, will get 30,000 LEGO sets to the children of NHS workers.

LEGO sets will be delivered to NHS hospital trusts across the UK, starting with Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust in London. Fairy Bricks will assist in distributing the sets to employees, while bearing in mind the social distancing and health and safety policies that hospitals have in place.

“We are truly grateful for everything our NHS heroes are doing to keep us safe. We know that the fight against COVID-19 is keeping many of them away from their families and their children,” says Kevin Gascoigne, CEO of Fairy Bricks. “This is a very small gesture we hope will bring some smiles to families during a very tough time.”

These LEGO sets will allow children to find moments of playful joy with their families as their dedicated parents endure a stressful working environment with demanding hours due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“I hope they will serve as a small thank you for all of the incredible work they are doing at this time,” Kevin told Brick Fanatics. “They are making sacrifices daily to save lives and hopefully building the sets at home with their families will provide a little essential escape. 

As well as having supported Fairy Bricks with the products, the LEGO Foundation will also donate £200,000 to UK children’s charities, part of a $50 million package announced a week ago.
