WVSC has been working with the Wolves Foundation & other organisations within the city to distribute face masks to voluntary sector organisations.

Wolves Foundation has continued to link up with Fosun Foundation to distribute a further supply of thousands of facemasks to help protect the community during the Covid-19 pandemic.

“We have been able to deliver thousands more masks in recent months and even though it is really positive news that regulations are going to continue being eased, we appreciate that some people may want to continue wearing masks in certain situations.

“As more charities and community groups return to face-to-face delivery at least they will have these supplies for their staff and service-users when required.”

The latest supply of masks has gone out to TLC College, Base 25, the Good Shepherd, SUIT (Service User Involvement Team) as well as to WVSC (Wolverhampton Voluntary Sector Council) who are then passing them on to various local organisations.

“The donation of the masks will be very welcome and will be distributed by WVSC to not for profit groups and organisations in Wolverhampton’s Voluntary and Community Sector,” said Sharon Nanan-Sen, from WVSC.

“WVSC is also currently an ambassador for the Covid Community Champions Project which raises awareness of the importance of having the vaccine.”

Mahmood Khan, from TLC College, added: “We are making community safety packs again and aim to include two or three masks per pack so the donation from Wolves Foundation is very timely – thank you!”
