Urgent Request – Please can you help ?

I hope you accept my apology for using this news feed to ask a huge personal favour.

My brother is a doctor in a large hospital in Yorkshire . He is on the front line, dealing with patients with COVID 19 and he and many of his fellow doctors and nurses still do not have protective equipment. They are being exposed to the virus on a daily basis with nothing useful to protect them. My brother asked if we could send him the protective equipment we use when strimming our garden (see photo) as this at least would help protect his eyes, mouth and nose. We did this and he now has this mask but one of these is not enough!

If you have a mask like this that you would be willing to send him to share with other NHS workers then I would be so very grateful .

If you feel you could do this, then please get in touch with me and I can send you his address. They are also lacking all in one body protectors that would cover their heads and bodies. Please email me at Many thanks .
