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.
