Perth College UHI donates protective equipment

Perth College UHI staff from departments including Motor Vehicle, Construction, Estates, Hairdressing and Beauty Therapy and the Nursery gathered all their Personal Protective Equipment and donated it to Perth & Kinross Council care workers.

There were twelve bin bags amounting to thousands of gloves and hundreds of aprons and masks.

In addition, the Creative Industries department sent Perth & Kinross Council a ‘hybrid mask’ design for use in their 3D printers.

Catherine Etri, Associate Principal, said: “As a key part of our local community, we are doing everything we can to help people stay as healthy as possible. We were happy to hand over as much protective equipment as we had available, in order to help the frontline staff who are doing an amazing job at keeping our communities safe.”
