Princess Yachts donates vital PPE to local community to help fight against virus

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) will be donated to Plymouth City Council by Princess Yachts to help on the frontline in the fight against Covid-19. This has followed a controlled-shutdown of all of its sites across the UK.

The beneficiaries in the region will range from the NHS to those essential workers in society such as care workers and other such teams who are working selflessly through these challenging times. Ongoing conversations between Plymouth City Council and Princess Yachts spurred the gesture, in the hopes of aligning efforts to help confront the challenges faced by society.

Tudor Evans, leader of Plymouth City Council, said, “I am extremely grateful to Princess Yachts for this act of kindness and community spirit. I would encourage more companies locally to follow their example and think about how they can contribute in the battle against Covid-19. The fastest way for us to recover from this is if we all come together now.”

Antony Sheriff, CEO, Princess Yachts, added, “We hope this donation of our PPE goes some way to helping NHS staff and other such services in these incredibly difficult times. We are in regular discussions with Plymouth City Council and if we can find other ways to help in the collective effort against Covid-19 we will do whatever we can to support.”

The virus situation in the world has put huge strain on resources and there has been challenges in sourcing PPE, especially for NHS staff. With over 3000 employees, making Princess Yachts the UK’s largest yacht manufacturer, it is playing its part to ensure essential services in the South West receive the protective equipment required to help fight against this virus.
