We are looking to fund PPE for our staff at Scarborough Hospital during the Corona Virus outbreak to keep our brave frontline staff safe!

New stretch target

We will buy* whatever the  staff needs to keep them safe- masks, visors, gloves, hand cream from all that washing- whatever it takes to keep out front line staff safe in the coming weeks we will help them buy with the money you pledge here.  All of the money will be spent on PPE. (*the hospital staff will tell us where to spend this money we wont be making that decision).


(We have taken a part payment out the fund at £4600) but will continue the fund throughout the following weeks as the crisis continues). I am a local resident who  has set up this initiative to source PPE for those who need it most in our fight against Coronavirus (COVID-19). 

Unfortunately current hospital supplies are not sufficient and while we are reassured the government is doing everything it can, healthcare workers on the frontline are risking themselves daily without adequate protection to care for sick patients. Healthcare workers on the frontline without PPE is the equivalent of going to war without armour and protection. We can all help them by helping to purchase more of this equipment now when its most needed- particularly things like visors.
