Leading developer Barratt and David Wilson Homes Mercia is encouraging the West Midlands community to all pitch in at a time of need following a donation to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham.
Managing Director Dominic Harman provided 140 high quality FFP3protective masks and packs of gloves to NHS staff as they continue to run low on essential supplies.
Based in Solihull, the housebuilder is known for its work within the communities it builds, but this donation aims to lead by example and encourage many more organisations in the area to do their bit.
Dominic said: “In this time of need, it’s important that we continue to work together as a collective and support our NHS staff whilst they continue to be the heroes in this battle we’re facing.
“We want to encourage other businesses and individuals to use the resources they have and donate them where they can to support our community in fighting Covid-19. At a time like this, we should all be doing our bit to help out.
“We’ve also been huge ambassadors for working together to support each other, but team spirit is needed now more than ever before.”
Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham is located on Mindelsohn Way and is part of University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust, one of the largest teaching hospital trusts in England.
As well as this donation, the developer has also donated itsentire stock of paper towels to Birmingham Children’s Hospital.
Parent company Barratt Developments announced last week that it had temporarily closed its sites to protect its staff and customers.
A spokesperson said: “The health and safety of customers and employees is our number one priority and we took the decision to temporarily close our 400 offices and sites across the country.”
