Industrial repairs specialist Radwell International has reacted to the Covid-19 pandemic by buying consignments of face masks and distributing them to charities, the Donna Louise Hospice for Children and Young People, the Hubb Foundation and the Douglas Macmillan Hospice.
With a global reach, Radwell International were able to use their buying power to source and purchase thousands of face masks.
Managing Director Martin Keegan said: “The news has been full of stories about the limited availability of face masks and other protective equipment and we wanted to help, Our buyers were able to source a significant batch of 3-ply disposable masks, which, while not meeting NHS specifications, offer excellent protection.
“I asked contacts for organisations who would benefit and was put in touch with the Donna Louise Hospice who were keen to have face masks for use by families visiting their children. We were happy to help such a wonderful cause and we were then put in touch with the Hubb Foundation, Stoke-on-Trent.
“Adam Yates, from Hubb, told us that they are working hard building packs of useful items to distribute to families and that face masks would be very useful for staff putting these together.”
Now a further batch of face masks has been dispatched to the Dougie Mac Hospice.
Radwell International has its European headquarters at Lymedale Business Park, Newcastle-under-Lyme. The industrial repairs business specialises in the buying, selling, stocking and supply of new and surplus industrial parts and components and works in 166 countries globally.
