AS part of International Nurses Week, and as a gesture to thank our frontline medical staff for their work during the COVID-19 pandemic, Macquarie Medi Spa have donated skincare packs to nurses in Bathurst and Orange.
Director of Macquarie Medi Spa, Karla McDiarmid, said thanks to a partnership with Dermalogica she and her staff were able to drop off the care packs last week.
"I put a call out to Dermalogica a month ago and 2000 skin care packs arrived this week for us to be able to give back to our nurses and frontline workers, including cleaners and transport workers.
"We delivered 700 packs to the Bathurst District Hospital, 80 to the Bathurst Private Hospital and we will be delivering to Orange next week.
Ms McDiarmid said Dermalogica also supported Macquarie Medi Spa earlier in the year, when the business held a pamper day for emergency services men and women who fought bushfires around the state. The volunteers enjoyed a facial and got to take home samples from Dermalogica as well.

She said she was pleased to be able to give something back to the medical community.
"I feel nurses are really under appreciated and it was only a few months ago I was sitting in emergency with my dad who we found out needed a pacemaker on Boxing Day and the young male nurse was fantastic.
"Watching nurses putting their lives at risk for all of us everyday is incredible - I only wish we could do more," she said.
Ms McDiarmid said it felt great to be able to help others in the community.
