A brand new fresh fruit and veg stall outside Dudley’s Russells Hall Hospital is proving a massive hit with staff and patients who are keen to eat more healthily.
Brierley Hill’s Young’s Fresh Fruit stall opened for business last week outside the hospital’s main entrance and gives staff and patients the chance to buy fresh fruit and vegetables.
Chief Executive Diane Wake said, “We want to make it as easy as possible for the people of Dudley to lead healthy lives and make good choices, whether they visit the stall for a tasty treat or as part of their weekly shop.”
Visitor Jinaid Younis said, “It’s a very good idea and is very convenient for members of the public and for staff.”
Staff member Sam Carter said, “The stall is going to have a fantastic impact as it is tempting staff and patients to eat more fruit and veg.”
The stall is open from 8am until 4pm Monday to Saturday and sells everything from bananas to blueberries and peaches to potatoes.
