Punchline Business and Community Champion: Superdry donates 300,000 PPE items
By Rob Freeman | 24th April 2020
Superdry has donated around 300,000 items of personal protective equipment to care workers and homes across Gloucestershire.
The donation by the Cheltenham-based clothing company is made up of masks, aprons and gloves which are being distributed to frontline care workers supporting some of our most vulnerable older people.
And it has earned Superdry a nomination as a Punchline Business and Community Champion - an initiative backed by GFirst LEP and the Growth Hub.
Councillor Kathy Williams, cabinet member for adult social care at Gloucestershire County Council, said: "I want to say a massive thank you to Superdry for this wonderful donation - that will really help us guarantee supplies for frontline staff in our county.
"Care workers are doing such a vital job for us - and with the help of Superdry and others we are working hard to ensure they get the help and support they need."
The equipment will be used by frontline workers caring for vulnerable people with varying needs such as learning disabilities, physical disabilities, mental health and dementia.
It will be distributed to health and care workers in a variety of care settings including residential care homes, nursing homes, residential an community hospices providing end-of-life care and those supporting vulnerable people in their own home
The donation comes in addition to 82,500 items of PPE received from the Government earlier this week.
