Local business Performance Doorset Solutions (PDS) has donated over 200 bottles of hand sanitiser to key frontline workers.
The company’s suppliers provided the small bottles of sanitiser, which has been shared between nurses at Royal Oldham Hospital, Springhill Hospice, community nurses and two local care homes.
PDS Managing Director, Tim Fairley said: "We are in unprecedented times at the moment and demand for pocket-sized hand sanitisers has spiralled, to such an extent that some of our key frontline workers could not get any, which is terrible.
"We contacted our large database of suppliers and eventually managed to secure some, which enabled us to share them out between nurses at Oldham Hospital, Springhill Hospice, the Community Nurses and two local care homes. We supplied over 200 bottles in the end, which was more or less everything we could get hold of.
"We are proud to be a business that can play our part in the wider community and help in any way we can."
Public Health England has advised that hand sanitisers should have 60% or higher alcohol content to be effective against the coronavirus.
