Here is a list of local Lincolnshire businesses who are 'doing their bit' to help in any way they can…

RG Carter

Our Charity of the Year St Barnabas Hospice recently put out a call for urgent donations of PPE equipment due to a shortage. Jayne Southall our CEO contacted her son who works for RG Carter who quickly jumped at the chance to help the charity, collecting 2000 pairs of disposable gloves and supplying them to the St Barnabas Hospice headquarters on Nettleham Road. St Barnabas are still in need of PPE equipment such as disposable gloves, disposable face masks, water repellent face masks and visors, if you have any please call Alison on 07850 083 281.

Our friends and supporters BAE Systems have been supporting the national ventilator effort, employees across their business have rallied to donate vital PPE to the NHS. Employees in their Air sector are 3D printing parts for newly designed face shields plus they are sourcing tens of thousands of additional face shields through their supply chains to distribute to the NHS on their behalf. Already 20,000 face shields are on their way to locations around the country with the remaining set to be delivered to the NHS this month!
