College donates PPE to frontline workers

Trafford College has donated 3,000 items of personal protective equipment to local care workers to help during the COVID-19 crisis.

The College dispatched protective gloves from its Hair and Beauty Department shortly after lockdown started. It is understood the gloves will help carers do their jobs across adult services with some sent for use in local hospitals.

Trafford Council Leader Andrew Western tweeted, “It’s been an incredibly challenging week for our frontline teams made worse by the lack of PPE. We are begging, borrowing and stealing until our next delivery arrives and I want to thank our partners Trafford College who have given us their supply of PPE today.”

Trafford Council has already been in contact with its suppliers over future donations.

Principal of Trafford College Lesley Davies OBE said: “We are pleased we have been able to support our wonderful frontline teams at this incredibly vital time. Carers do such a crucial job, we were more than happy to have been able to work with our partners at Trafford Council to help out.”
