Included within the donation are masks for the Leicester Royal Infirmary, Loughborough Hospital and Glenfield Hospital.
Additional respiratory masks are also set to be delivered to Derby and Glenfield Hospitals, which Queen’s Medical Centre, Nuneaton Hospital, Coventry Hospital and Sheffield General Hospital have also been sent the equipment.
John Reddington, Managing Director at David Wilson Homes East Midlands, said: “The donation of high quality FFP3 protective masks from our site teams across Leicestershire, Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Warwickshire will hopefully help NHS employees to continue the admirable work they do on a daily basis.
“We’re proud of our employees for their decision to support those whose need is greater, and we’re thrilled to make the most of this opportunity to support our key workers.
“As a leading developer, it’s our responsibility to assist charities and organisations within the communities we build.”
The masks have been accumulated by members of David Wilson Homes’ teams at developments across Leicestershire including: Fleckney Fields in Fleckney, Grange View in Hugglescote, Wigston Meadows in Wigston, Burnmill Grange in Market Harborough and David Wilson Homes at Kibworth.
