Covid-19 – Helping our heroes with 30,000 face masks

As the world faces an extraordinary challenge, we’re focusing efforts towards supporting Charities and Care homes in the fight against Covid-19.

We want to say a heartfelt thank you to our charity and social care heroes. That’s why we’re donating 30,000 face masks to fifteen randomly selected clients – supporting those on the front-line to keep safe and support efforts to tackle the virus. We’re proud to be helping in this small way.

These much-needed supplies will be hand delivered by our wonderful employees who will drive to clients in their own cars, following social distancing guidelines of course.

Clients struggling to get PPE

Many of our clients, including care homes, charities and national housing organisations, are battling – due to unprecedented demand as well as a lack of time and resources – to not only to get hold of essential PPE, but also struggling to get hold of trusted suppliers to order stock at acceptable prices.

There are three million NHS and Social Care heroes in the UK, all of whom are relying heavily on PPE during this crisis. In times like this we should put aside our own personal interests and focus on helping others.

We felt we should give back to our community of amazing clients who have supported the growth of our business over the last five years. That’s why we bought and have donated over 30,000 face masks, most of which will go to our clients who are Charities or Care homes.

We are determined to help those in need to get through this crisis. We are delighted that we can support our clients, in a small way, by donating these much-needed masks to Charities and Care companies throughout the country. As prices soar, with supply not matching demand, we continue to protect our clients’ money and connect them with their much-needed PPE supplies – now and in the future.

We are overwhelmed by the response and urge all partners and suppliers in the Care sector to give something back to the community from which we all benefit.

Patrick Ryan, CEO at crisis charity, Hestia, said: “The biggest thank you to Marr Procurement for your gift of 2,500 face masks for Hestia’s staff so we can continue to keep our Care homes, and supported housing, open and our staff and residents safe.

The current crisis is bringing out the best in people and Marr Procurement’s generosity is further proof of this.”
