UK Mask Force delivers PPE to Royal British Legion
Volunteers from UK Mask Force have made a delivery of PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) to The Royal British Legion’s Maurice House, near Broadstairs, Kent. The team at Maurice House provides expert residential, nursing and dementia care as well as short-term respite care for the Armed Forces community and their families.
The delivery is one of six UK Mask Force drops happening at Legion care homes across the UK.
Steve Barnett, Assistant Director for Operations at the Royal British Legion said: “The Royal British Legion and everyone at Maurice House would like to thank UK Mask Force for providing us with additional PPE. During the COVID-19 pandemic the safety and well-being of our residents and staff is our highest priority. Now more than ever it is crucial that those who have served and sacrificed are looked after. This kind donation will help ensure we can continue providing critical support to those who are most at risk.”
Brigadier Hamish McGregor, MBE, MC from UK Mask Force said, "We made a very successful visit to Maurice House to deliver a large quantity of masks and bottles of hand sanitizers. Mask Force is a charity operated primarily by former service personnel who have been supplying PPE to Care Homes and NHS doctors’ practices throughout the country. “Several former servicemen, led by Lieutenant General Louis Lillywhite, the former Surgeon General of the British Armed Forces, turned up for the handover of PPE wearing regimental berets and medals, it was a moving event."
The Royal British Legion operates a portfolio of six care homes, providing 450 residents with high quality residential, nursing and specialist dementia care.
