Sunseeker International donates PPE to Poole Hospital
In support of the NHS during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Sunseeker International is donating Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to Poole Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.
This PPE equipment consists of 400 face masks and 4,000 gloves.
“We all need to do our bit in these exceptional circumstances,” says Michael Straughan, Chief Operating Officer. “We wanted to support our hardworking NHS workers as they continue their exceptional frontline work against the coronavirus. As we had PPE equipment available, we felt it was important to donate these to Poole Hospital to help however we can.”
“It has been so heartening to see the business community rallying around our hospitals during this current crisis,” says Mark Mould, Chief Operating Officer at Poole Hospital. “We are so grateful to Sunseeker International for this offer of support, and their equipment will further improve our resilience during this challenging period for the NHS.”
Meanwhile, following a controlled shutdown of its sites, Princess Yachts has donated its stock of PPE to Plymouth City Council, which will distribute it across the region.
The stock will be handed out to key frontline workers, from members of the NHS to care workers, according to Boat International.
Speaking about the donation, Princess Yachts Chief Executive, Antony Sheriff, says: “We hope this donation of our PPE goes some way to helping NHS staff and other such services in these incredibly difficult times.
“We are in regular discussions with Plymouth City Council and if we can find other ways to help in the collective effort against COVID-19 we will do whatever we can to support.”
