Santander Universities Continue to Help the Community During the Covid-19 Pandemic

Community carers and the homeless are among those to be supported by businesses using funding delivered by the University of Kent during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Nadia Esi is a start-up business founded by Kent Business School student Nadia Simpson. The £500 grant received by Nadia Esi was used to produce and donate 100 hand sanitizers to community care companies.

Nadia, who is currently studying Accounting and Finance, said: “We should all applaud the work being done by our amazing key workers to care for high-risk elderly people during the pandemic. I am pleased Nadia Esi was able to support them during this time.”

In Canterbury, The Ambrette used their funding to provide 275 hot healthy meals for people being supported by the Catching Lives homeless charity and hot meals for NHS hospital staff.

The funding came through emergency response grants provided by Santander Universities, one of the University of Kent’s key partners.

Ambrette owner and chef, Dev Biswal, said: “We are together in supporting the amazing work being done at Catching Lives.”

The restaurant, which pivoted into home delivery during the lockdown, has also been working with the Porchlight charity.
