We are using our global supply chain network to fast track the delivery of 100,000 surgical masks to the UK National Health Service for use by medical staff.
We are repurposing our trench coat factory in Castleford, Yorkshire, to make non-surgical gowns and masks for patients in UK hospitals.
We are funding research into a single-dose vaccine developed by the University of Oxford. The university has one of the world’s best track records in emergency vaccine development, and its COVID-19 vaccine is on course to begin human trials next month.
We are donating to charities that are dedicated to tackling food poverty across the UK, including FareShare and The Felix Project. With increasing pressures on food supplies for those in need, these organisations are expanding their efforts to help those struggling as a result of the coronavirus outbreak.
