Six Town Housing’s Repairs Direct service has shared a large amount of stored Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) with frontline council workers and community volunteers who are providing services to vulnerable residents in the borough.

5,000 pairs of gloves, 100 all-in-one suits and 100 facemasks were donated to the Community Hubs that have been set up by Bury Council to deliver supplies to those most at risk from coronavirus. PPE, googles and hand sanitizer are also being provided to Bury Council’s Accommodation Team, who are working to support homeless people, as and when they require it.

A spokesperson for Six Town Housing said, “We have provided PPE to council colleagues and volunteers to reduce the risk of coronavirus spreading to some of the most vulnerable in the borough, including elderly people with no support network and others who need to be shielded. We hope the equipment will also provide additional piece of mind and security to those wearing it, who continue to work on the frontline and make a big difference to those in need.”
