West Midlands Police officers have teamed up with South & City College to donate energy/soft drinks to NHS staff across their region.
Hundreds of untouched and unopened bottles of drink had been left at the Bordesley Green campus.
Rather than throwing the bottles of drink away, the college made contact with officers from Birmingham police to see if the drinks could be given away to people who might need them.

Officers decided to hand them out to staff who are based at Heartlands and Good Hope hospitals.
A spokesperson for West Midlands Police said:
“They will hopefully offer some refreshment to our health workers and show our appreciation for their efforts.
“It was a lovely gesture from the college to offer the bottles for free. We’re all working together to help others as we fight COVID-19”.
