Times are really tough at the moment, but help is available… 

Times really are tough at the moment; you only have to tune into the news each day to see just how difficult people are finding it right now. From hiking energy prices to the ever-rising cost of living, it’s impossible not to feel the pinch. 

With December being the time of giving and at what can be an expensive and stressful period, we wanted to dedicate this December to highlighting and promoting the support that Cavell Nurses’ Trust provides to UK nurses, midwives and healthcare support workers. 

Alexandra are proud supporters of Cavell Nurses Trust and the fantastic work they do, and as well as being honoured sponsors of the Cavell Star Awards, accolades bestowed to nurses, midwives, nursing associates and healthcare assistants, recognising those who shine bright and show exceptional care to one of three groups of people:
