Autoglass donates PPE to care homes and hospices
Autoglass has donated 2,000 protective masks to six care homes and hospices to protect frontline staff during the coronavirus crisis.
The masks, which are FFP2 and suitable for medical use, will be given to care homes and hospices local to the head office sites of Autoglass in Leicestershire and Bedfordshire.
The donation forms part of the ongoing partnership between Autoglass and Together for Short Lives, the charity for seriously ill children and the UK’s 54 children’s hospices. Together for Short Lives supports two of the six hospices which will receive the donation.
Andy Fletcher, CEO for Together for Short Lives, said: “By donating essential PPE to hospices and care homes, you’ll be helping key workers on the frontline to deliver their excellent care for children safely. Thank you, Autoglass.”
Autoglass is also continuing its assistance for key workers during the pandemic by providing a contactless windscreen replacement service with full social distancing. The service is currently only available to identified key workers providing critical services in the Covid-19 pandemic response, and those who need their vehicle for essential travel that is permitted by the UK Government. Emergency products – side and rear windows – are available as usual while windscreen chip repairs will be scheduled in when it is appropriate and safe to do so.
