Altrad’s Fawley team donate PPE to local nursing home

Our team based on Fawley Oil Refinery, have been playing their part to assist the local community, supporting key workers at St Johns Nursing Home in Rownhams, near Southampton.

Some of our team members had heard that certain nursing and care homes were struggling for PPE. One of the team members has a relative in a local care home and he’d been alerted to the fact that PPE was in short supply. The decision was immediately taken to supply the nursing home with 200 face masks and 50 paper coveralls.

Senior Operations Manager Alan Chorley and Project Controls Apprentice Elliot Serdet were on hand to deliver the safety equipment to the nursing home. Alan said: “We were greeted by a really enthusiastic care home manager who could not be more grateful. It felt really good to be donating to the people on the front line taking on this virus. “

At Altrad, we support critical human infrastructure assets, that provide power, fuel and other essential services to our communities. We are part of these communities and are proud to support them, when they need us most.
