Parish Council Donates PPE to local care homes

– stay at home, protect the NHS, save lives

Hawkhurst Parish Council made a donation of PPE to support Bowles Lodge and Hawkhurst House this week.

Councillor Clare Escombe, chairman, Hawkhurst Parish Council said:

“In Hawkhurst we have two care homes doing amazing work in the current crisis and one of our suppliers delivered a mix of paper towels, wipes, sanitizers and gloves to the Council which would have been used at the Council venues. As our venues are closed we decided to make a donation to both Bowles Lodge and Hawkhurst House”

Lindsey Leathem at Hawkhurst House said “Thank you so much for the donation. They will come in very handy.” Councillor Escombe continued “We are aware it is a drop in the ocean but every little helps and we have given them our suppliers details. There is still an appeal for PPE to help the local GP’s and care home settings – call 01580 453015”
