Foster and Gamko have responded to the Norfolk and Suffolk Foundation Trust’s appeal for face masks with a donation of PPE.
The King’s Lynn-based manufacturers procured a number of masks for staff at its factory to ensure compliance with government legislation and was able to donate surplus masks to the Trust.
Mason Fitzgerald, deputy chief executive and director of the hospital trust’s strategic partnerships said: “We are so grateful for Foster and Gamko’s support. All of our staff are now required to wear face masks in line with government guidance and so whilst we have a rolling supply, donations of this nature are also very much appreciated and help us to keep our service users and staff safe.”
The refrigerator equipment manufacturer said it was pleased to help doctors, nurses and other key workers who continue to deal with the effects of the coronavirus.
Chris Playford, market and development director for Foster and Gamko, said: “Doing our bit to help local healthcare services is clearly something we’re extremely keen to be part of.
“We’re very proud to play a part in supporting the local community, where just like in the rest of the country, the effects of Covid-19 are being closely felt. If this donation can help to protect the Trust’s staff and their patients, then it is our pleasure to do so.”
