We’d like to say a very special thank you to the local college, after it kindly donated PPE equipment from its science department to help protect our frontline carers.
In a bid to play its part in the national fight against coronavirus, St. Francis’ College, in Letchworth Garden City, has generously donated safety spectacles, splash-proof goggles, protective gloves and disposable aprons to us.
Our dedicated team has gone above and beyond the call of duty since the pandemic began, with our frontline carers putting themselves at risk to ensure our residents are protected and kept safe from infection. And so, the additional PPE equipment has been greatly appreciated.
Alongside St Francis’ College’s very kind donation, it’s incredible to see, as a community, that we’re all pulling together in these unprecedented times. Hitchin, and the surrounding area, has a strong community spirit, and this is a prime example of that. Thank you to our friends at the college – your donations will make a huge difference in helping us continue to protect our residents.
The college, a boarding and day school for girls aged three to 18, said via its Facebook page: “The science department is pleased to be able to support our frontline key workers at this very challenging time. By donating a range of much-needed PPE, we aim to support staff at Foxholes Care Home, in Hitchin, and Garden City Court Care Home, in Letchworth.
“In total, 106 safety spectacles, 60 splash-proof goggles, 10 boxes of protective gloves and some disposable aprons from St. Francis’ College will now protect care home staff, who are playing a vital part in the fight against the coronavirus.”
Bronwen Goulding, Headmistress at the college, which is currently providing online learning courses while closed, added: “The College is delighted to be able to assist those in need during this difficult time.”
