UK’s Health Minister Matt Hancock has showered praises on fashion retail giant Burberry for it continuous efforts in producing protective gears for healthcare workers.
Substantiating on this, he said “Burberry has turned over its production to make protective gears and deserves all credit for going that extra mile to help the country in this time of need.”
Late last month, the brand had announced that it will be retooling its Yorkshire factory to produced masks and non-surgical gowns for the patients and the medical staff.
The British brand had pledged to use its supply chain network to fast-track the delivery of over 100,000 surgical masks to the NHS in view of the gross shortage being faced by medical professionals during the crisis.
Here it is important to note that Burberry is also aiming to contribute to two UK-based charities, The Felix Project and FareShare, which are working on uplifting food poverty in the stricken areas.
