A Lincolnshire housebuilder has recently donated vital personal protective equipment (PPE) to two Lincolnshire healthcare facilities to protect key workers during the coronavirus pandemic.

Chestnut Homes, which has been building quality new homes in Lincolnshire for over 30 years, made a double donation to two healthcare facilities in the county: the first was to St Barnabas Hospice, an independent hospice which provides palliative and end-of-life care to adults living with a life-limiting or terminal illness, while the second was delivered to Lincoln County Hospital.

A total of 14 brow guards, 14 visors, 5,000 aprons and 20,000 pairs of gloves were delivered to Lincoln County Hospital and prior to this Chestnut Homes Managing Director David Newton delivered face masks and gloves to St Barnabas Hospice.

“It is vitally important that every one of us does what we can to support our NHS during the current coronavirus pandemic,” said David.

“At Chestnut Homes we have already donated all of the masks and gloves that we had in stock to local hospitals and are doing our best to source more.

“We are hugely grateful to all of the NHS staff at St Barnabas Hospice and Lincoln County Hospital for all of their hard work at this extremely difficult time.”
