Stix Drinks donates 16,000 vitamin drinks to NHS staff
An innovative drinks company is donating 16,000 vitamin drinks to NHS staff across the UK to keep them hydrated with vitamins.
Bristol-based Stix Drinks will be donating 16,000 free Vit Stix, 10ml liquid vitamin portions that mix with water to produce a vitamin drink, to hospitals including Southmead Bristol, Birmingham Women and Children’s and Frimley in Surrey.
Packed with immunity boosting vitamins, such as B5, B6, B12, C, D and Zinc, Vit Stix will enable NHS staff to increase their vitamin intake and stay hydrated whilst they are on the go. Stix have seen a significant rise in NHS orders as caterers look to boost patient and staff immunity levels.
With demand for the immunity boosting products increasing since COVID-19, the company has had to increase its manufacturing to keep pace, supplying numerous government organisations, retailers and direct customers.
Tom Anderson Dixon, chief hydrator of Stix Drinks said: “These are unprecedented times and the NHS has been a shining beacon of hope amongst all of the uncertainty. If we are able to donate more Vit Stix we will as we are in awe of the NHS staff and all they are doing to care and protect every one of us. I’m pleased that we are able to collaborate with Bidfood to provide the NHS with our Vit Stix Vitamin Drinks."
Carrie Howes, national account manager for NHS at Bidfood said: “I am delighted that we’ve been able to work with Stix Drinks in coordinating the shipments to hospitals across the UK, supporting our fantastic NHS staff on the frontline whilst they work tirelessly to support the country."
