“Doing our bit to help local healthcare services is clearly something we’re extremely keen to be part of,” said Chris Playford, Market and Development Director for Foster and Gamko.

“We’re very proud to play a part in supporting the local community, where just like in the rest of the country, the effects of COVID-19 are being closely felt. If this donation can help to protect the Trust’s staff and their patients, then it is our pleasure to do so.”

The donation comes a month after the company restarted manufacturing in response to the re-opening of fast-food chains across the country.
