The Wilberforce Trust in York has received a donation of 200 poly cotton reusable face masks from a dedicated band of Masketeers.

These were donated by the Bath Theatrical Masketeers who have made and distributed over 3,500 washable masks to health and care staff across the country. 

Supported by two Lions Clubs these enterprising philanthropists have been living the Musketeer mantra “One for All and All for One”.

A Wilberforce Trust spokesperson said: “The trust has worked flat out to provide full PPE for all our support workers since the onset of the virus.

“This extra supply in many different colours and designs will be a welcome change for our staff to use when they are out and about on errands.

“They will supplement our supply and bring a smile to our dedicated staff.”
