2020 International Year of the Nurse and Midwife Banner

Domino’s Horsham showed its appreciation for the hard work Wimmera Health Care Group team members are putting in by donating pizzas this week.

Domino’s Horsham owner Ben French said they decided to show WHCG how much they respected and appreciated front line workers and asked if they could provide pizzas for night shift workers.

"It is a very busy time for healthcare workers," Mr French said.

"We know they are under increased pressure and working really hard to be prepared," he said.

"So we wanted to boost morale in these tough times. It’s our way of saying thank you.

"We are doing it for the supermarkets as well because we know they are also under a lot of pressure."

The Domino’s team delivered 12 pizzas to the Emergency Department on Monday, 12 to Oxley and ICU on Tuesday and 12 to Yandilla on Wednesday night.

Gail Pollard was working in the Emergency Department on Monday night when the pizzas arrived and she said the mood instantly lifted.

"It just gave us such a big boost," Ms Pollard said.

"It is really uncertain times at the moment and things are changing day-to-day," she said.

"Expectations are high from the community and rightly so.

"So it was lovely to have our hard work and often anti-social working hours appreciated with this gesture."

Ms Pollard said the gesture really meant a lot to everyone.

"Unfortunately we are in an industry which is often on the receiving end of aggression, so to have such an act of kindness was lovely."
