The Hut Group donates 25 tonnes of PPE to Greater Manchester NHS
The Hut Group has donated 3.5 million units of personal protective equipment to the health and care system in Greater Manchester.
In recent weeks, the company has sourced more than 25 tonnes of medical-grade PPE and is airfreighting the goods to the UK as part of a £2million project. Now at THG’s UK distribution centre in Warrington, the first batch is ready for distribution this week.
THG is working closely with the NHS in Greater Manchester and the city’s mayor Andy Burnham to distribute the items to people working in the NHS, frontline social care services and hospices.
The company is also airfreighting additional PPE for its own staff who are working in its warehouse and manufacturing sites.
Matthew Moulding, founder and chief executive, of THG, said: “NHS and frontline workers are doing an outstanding and vital job to protect people in the UK. It is only right that we play our part and utilise THG’s global network to source, buy and donate essential PPE. We want to show our appreciation and play our part in helping keep them safe.
“As this pandemic evolves, we will continue to do all we can to provide support to those who need it most. The PPE donation is in addition to THG’s £10 million aid package to support vulnerable communities, key workers and emergency services in Manchester, the UK and other markets during the covid-19 crisis.”
