HEALTHCARE delivery company Bullens has been delivering a different kind of help to local foodbanks across Sefton and the wider Liverpool area; donating over 5,000 reusable face masks, hand sanitisers and wet wipes to combat ‘mask poverty’ across the borough.
In response to reports from foodbanks across Sefton and Liverpool that people are struggling to afford face masks and other essential hygiene items following government measures making the wearing of face coverings mandatory in many locations, Bullens set out to deliver reusable masks, hand sanitisers and wet wipes.
Bullen Healthcare’s Marketing Director, Steve Winterson, said: “With the wearing of face coverings becoming mandatory for many parts of daily life, the offering of free reusable face masks other essential hygiene items will be of extra benefit to those who are more vulnerable. Especially with the Liverpool City Region being placed under national lockdown restrictions it is more important than ever to look after our local community.”
Bullens has been in the healthcare business for over 160 years, and as a fourth-generation family owned business which has its headquarters in Liverpool, takes supporting local good causes seriously.
Foodbanks supported by the initiative include South Sefton, Salvation Army Southport and Southport Foodbank as well as others across the Liverpool City Region.
