Shoes for our COVID Ward nurses

Our COVID Ward nurses on Ward 22 have received a generous donation of work shoes from footwear company Skechers.

As part of Skechers October campaign – ‘Skechers Supports Essential Workers’ – 48 shoes from their work range, were donated to nurses on Ward 22.

Kaitlin Themistoklis, COVID Ward Registered Nurse, thanked Skechers for their new foot gear.

“It feels great to receive the shoes, we really appreciate it. Thank you to Skechers for supporting our hard work and thank you for helping us to continue working hard,” she said.

Rebecca Foggie, COVID Ward Registered Nurse, said, “We are very thankful for Skechers for providing us with the shoes. It is great to have some support on board and we really appreciate it.”

Amy Wilson, COVID Ward Clerk, said it was great that nurses were being supported and recognised for their commitment to providing great patient care.

“Thank you for supporting our feet. A big thanks to Skechers, we really appreciate it. It’s the small things that mean a lot,” she said.

The Skechers work range is designed to support workers that are on their feet for long hours and feature slip resistant traction outsoles, water and stain resistant uppers and air-cooled memory foam insoles.

Daniela Jovanovic, Head of Marketing Skechers ANZ, said the Skechers Supports Essential Workers campaign was to support nurses who are doing long shifts and are on their feet all day due to the impacts of COVID-19.

“This is our way of saying thank you to the workers helping keep our communities safe during these unprecedented times,” she said.
