“We are delighted to play our part in supporting the work of frontline healthcare staff at this time.”

At present there is a shortage of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for medical staff and the government is keen for manufacturers, where possible, to transition to making protective equipment such as masks and scrubs.

Last week, the sportswear manufacturer announced that it would ‘suspend operations’ until May at the earliest due to the impact of the coronavirus on business.
