We first introduced you to Project Wingman in April. For those not familiar, the project started out with the creation of a first-class lounge-like space in the Whittington Hospital in London to comfort NHS staff battling the coronavirus on the front lines.

For many reasons, Project Wingman is a cause that is close to our hearts at TPG U.K., and we want to help as best we can.

One of the things that keeps our NHS front line staff going is coffee. So, our goal is to supply a coffee machine to each and every Project Wingman lounge in the 42 hospitals that are already set up. To do this, we need to raise around £7,500 and we’d love YOU to help us get there!

Today, we’ve launched our #CoffeeForTheNHS campaign, which involves posting a selfie with your and your favourite coffee mug and donating the cost of your morning coffee to our GoFundMe page — easy, right? Project Wingman will have direct access to the funds, which will then be spent on buying the coffee machines.

#CoffeeForTheNHS ✈️ ☕ TPG UK has teamed up with Project Wingman, a charity set up by grounded airline staff in the UK to support front-line NHS staff during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Over 3,000 volunteers have come together and created ‘first class lounges’ in 42 hospitals up and down the UK where NHS staff battling COVID-19 can come before, after and during their shifts. ✨ So far, food and drink donations have been flowing but there’s one vital piece of kit missing — coffee machines! That’s where TPG UK and YOU can make a difference. We’re hoping to raise a total of £7,500 to provide an easy to use, hospital regulated coffee machine in each of the Project Wingman Lounges. To help us reach our target, all you need to do is upload a photo of yourself holding your favourite coffee mug to your Instagram feed or story, tag three friends and donate the cost of your morning coffee (or however much you feel you can spare). You can find the GoFundMe page via the link in our bio. Make sure to use the hashtag #CoffeeForTheNHS and tag @project_wingman2020 and @ThePointsGuyUK so we can share and thank you for your help! ❤️

Since its inception, Project Wingman transformed into a team of more than 3,000 volunteering grounded airline crew working together 42 hospitals throughout the U.K. — all in the name of supporting the well-being of NHS staff battling the coronavirus on the front lines. They have even gone global with the opening of the first Project Wingman lounges in the U.S.A.

If you’re an airline employee who is currently furloughed and you’d like to help out, you can register to volunteer here.
