Staff from Royal Mail in Carlton will attempt to deliver some cheer as well as the post today as they carry out their rounds in fancy dress to raise funds for NHS workers who helped a coworker make a recovery from coronavirus.
Postman Simon Stevenson, who came up with the idea, assembled his squad of superheroes outside the Co-Op on Main Street in Gedling earlier today before taking to the streets to deliver mail across the borough.
The post office workers are hoping their stunt will promote a JustGiving page they have set up to raise cash for the ward that treated their colleague in the QMC.
Generous staff at the Co-op store in Gedling have also donated a food hamper to the delivery workers to raffle off to help boost fundraising.
Mr Stevenson told Gedling Eye: “We also want to raise awareness and funds for the NHS, who did such a great job looking after one of our colleagues who got coronavirus recently. He’s been in the QMC for a month, but has now pulled through. We now want to give something back for the care and support he received.
A JustGiving page has now been set up to collect donations for this worthy cause. You can find the page here: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/martyn-gough
