Developer to provide homes for NHS workers during COVID-19 outbreak
Luxury bungalow provider RoyaleLife is offering 21 lodges to National Health Service (NHS) workers in Rutland for free during the COVID-19 pandemic.
After reports that more than 20,000 extra staff have joined the NHS to help fight the disease, the provider has pledged to supply 21 of its 2-to-3-bedroom holiday lodges from its sister company RoyaleResorts.
Robert Bull, chief executive of RoyaleLife, said: “Key Workers are essential for us to combat COVID-19 and their strength and commitment to the cause is highly inspirational. We wanted to do our bit to show our appreciation to this incredible workforce during these unprecedented times.
“As a thank you to the tireless work our incredible NHS workers do, we are offering 21 lodges at our luxury leisure development, Royale Ranksborough Hall in Rutland, free of charge to NHS workers who are required to stay away from home during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We hope that this small act of kindness will help in what is otherwise an extremely stressful time.”
Royale Ranksborough Hall is situated in Langham in Rutland, 10 minutes away from the market town of Oakham.
Its holiday lodges are furnished and come with private parking and gardens.
Bull added: “With the development currently closed to holiday-makers until further notice, and with Stamford and Rutland hospital just a 25-minute drive away, this is the perfect opportunity for RoyaleLife to provide a home-from-home for those working away from their families.”
