Like most heritage organisations Heritage Quay keeps a disaster kit in case of serious damage to the University’s heritage collections (eg. through flooding). We are very fortunate in that we have never had to use our disaster kit – other than in practices!
Last week Sarah was able to access the University’s closed campus and retrieve the personal protective equipment from the disaster kit and donate it to two frontline NHS workers known to members of the Heritage Quay team.
We were able to donate 500 gloves, 800 aprons, 11 full protective suits, about 40 masks, and a pair of goggles, as well as 6 packs of disinfectant wipes.
