Hinkley Helping the NHS with Essential Supplies

By EDF | Posted May 05, 2020

8,000 face masks have been donated to Taunton’s Musgrove Park hospital by EDF’s Hinkley Point B and C sites.

The latest support follows donations of hundreds of eye protectors to Williton Surgery and Musgrove Park Hospital, as well as 1,000 face masks for Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service.

Individuals from across the two sites are supporting the wider community by volunteering in a number of different ways. Some are helping care homes and isolated elderly people whilst one worker has joined the Taunton Scrubbers  group who are sewing scrubs and masks for frontline NHS staff.  They have received a £500 donation from Hinkley Point C.

Local businesses within the Hinkley supply chain are also playing their part. Catering provider, Somerset Larder have worked with the food charity Fareshare to prepare meals for vulnerable people in the local area. They are also feeding medical staff working long hours at community hospitals and medical facilities.
