Sunderland College has donated personal protection equipment to frontline NHS staff treating coronavirus patients.
Staff at City Campus in Sunderland handed hundreds of face masks, protective eye wear, coveralls and protective gloves to South Tyneside and Sunderland NHS Foundation Trust.
The much-needed supplies from the college’s vocational learning programmes including hair and beauty, construction and engineering will support health workers who are fighting the COVID-19 outbreak.
Warick Stephenson, Associate Principal (Technical) at Sunderland College, said: “We are pleased to be able to support the NHS with this essential equipment during this unprecedented time. We are all in this together!“
