Composites distributor GRP Solutions says that it can help UK companies supply face masks and other personal protective equipment (PPE) to the NHS.

GRP Solutions has already supplied to a number of hospitals around the country but has now nearly exhausted its supplies, the company said. The NHS is looking for FFP2 and above masks and other PPE.

‘If your firm has closed temporarily/is closing or has spare masks and other PPE that could help save a life, please could you donate them to a local hospital or call us on 02392 459510 for help in identifying which hospitals require them,’ a press release said. ‘This situation is only going to get worse not better. We know life is extremely difficult at the moment but this is something positive that can save lives and your act of kindness will be much appreciated. Don’t leave it in your stores, when it could save lives on the ward.’
