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.
