St Peter's School
As the NHS launched a nationwide campaign to recruit 250,000 volunteers earlier this week, St Peter’s School York is supporting the fight against coronavirus by donating over 6,500 pieces of personal protective equipment (PPE) to York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.
The donation includes four infection protection kits (complete with mask, visor, coverall, gloves, shoe covers, tape and a waste bag), 48 filtering facepieces, 626 surgical face masks, 150 pieces of eye protection (goggles and glasses), 5,500 latex free gloves, 350 disposable aprons and 25 disposable decorators coveralls.
The items of PPE have been sourced from St Peter’s School’s on-site medical centre, its science, design and technology departments, and donations from pupils. The equipment will be delivered to York Hospital on Thursday 26 March.
Jeremy Walker, Head Master of St Peter's School, said: “I am so pleased that we have been able to donate these essential items to support our local healthcare workers, who are putting in a huge amount of effort to keep us all safe and well. I am grateful to everyone for making these available for us to share at this important time.”
