We were very happy to donate our surplus high risk coats to the NHS this week, as our way of helping with the PPE shortage during the coronavirus crisis.

Sandra Corry, the Director of Quality and Nursing for the Somerset Clinical Commissioning Group, sent us this lovely response:

“I am writing to say a massive thank you on behalf of the Somerset Health and Care system for your donation of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). Across Somerset at this challenging time we are working hard to keep our patients and frontline health and care staff safe, with your support we are able to provide much needed additional resources to strengthen the national PPE supplies received. Your generosity and thoughtfulness is very much appreciated.”

We also donated cheese sauce to Moy Park in Northern Ireland. Its culinary team in Craigavon has turned the NPD kitchen into a production line, creating 1,000 meals a week to be distributed by The Resource Centre Derry.

We are now looking into donating to local food banks in Somerset, please contact us if you know of a worthy cause.

Our customers Samworth Brothers have sent all their suppliers this note. Always good to know your hard work is appreciated!
