Last month saw the launch of ‘Mask Our Heroes’, a charity focused on raising funds to purchase PPE for the frontline. The founder, Matt McGahan, whose father was recently a victim of COVID-19, has stated he is determined to focus his attention on raising money to donate much needed critical PPE for the frontline staff in the NHS and any other role that requires protection from the virus.
Following the launch through several media channels, social media has been used to encourage the #upsidedownchallenge, asking people to post films or images of themselves upside down. With celebrities quickly jumping on board to endorse the charity, and many people already donating to the gofundme page, PPE is being donated by Mask Our Heroes and hand delivered across the UK.
At this challenging time Ligentia has found many ways to support organisations looking to import PPE products and we are proud to partner with Mask Our Heroes as the charity’s Logistics Partner. Ligentia will provide all supply chain services to move goods into the UK in support of Mask Our Heroes.
Lee Alderman-Davis, Global Product and Development Director at Ligentia commented; “We are delighted to play a role in such a worthy and inspired initiative. Given the time-critical nature of PPE, our focus is to find the fastest solutions that will ensure the goods are delivered to the frontline as quickly as possible.
