Thank you to PPE donators and manufacturers
We wanted to take a moment to send out a thank you to all the people, clubs, businesses and charities that have supported us with donations of PPE over the past six weeks.
The call to arms mustered donations of surgical masks, gloves, aprons, visors, goggles full body suits, cleaning equipment and 2000 Easter eggs the latter going out to our young people and care agencies over the Easter weekend.
This donated stock was a life saver and enabled us to meet demand and keep the borough’s care workers and support staff safe whilst we established a new supply chain to help us meet the demand, we couldn’t have done it without you so thank you again.
We have been supporting our Care Homes, Dom Care Providers, GPs, Funeral Directors, Hospice, volunteers and council social care staff with PPE and as of today we have issued over 104,000 PPE items and 258 litres of sanitiser.
Surgical Masks 20000
Pair Gloves 38000
Hand Sanitiser 220 litres
Surface Sanitiser 38 litres
Full body suits 276
This is only the start of the new world we will be living in and the demand for all of these items is going to be with us for some time no doubt.
We also want to thank all those people and businesses that have diversified to manufacture or help source PPE. We have worked closely with over 100 suppliers and Conformance colleagues to enable us to get the right stock at the right time.
As part of the Thursday night clap for carers at 8pm, NHS staff and key workers, we also ask that people clap for our PPE donators and manufacturers – thank you!
