Cluny Estate has donated 100,000 face masks for use in the Highlands.
The Cluny Estate office contacted Edward Mountain MSP as they wished to provide masks, which had been identified as being in critically short supply, for use in the Highlands.
The use of face masks is now required when providing home care and Highland Home Care had been in contact with Edward informing him of the problems that they were facing.
This generous donation of face masks means that Highland Home Carers will have enough masks for their 500 staff for up to a month of operation.
The masks were flown in to Stanstead airport at the weekend and delivery to the Highland Home Care headquarters in Inverness was overseen by Edward Mountain MSP and accepted by Campbell Mair, Managing Director of Highland Home Carers.
Edward Mountain MSP said:
“I am extremely grateful to Cluny Estate for donating these facemasks to Highland Home Carers, who are desperately in need of PPE to carry out their home visits across the Highlands. It is incredibly generous and shows their support for the local community and specifically the Highlands.”
Campbell Mair, Managing Director of Highland Home Carers said:
“We are so grateful for this support from Cluny Estate, along with our local MSP Edward Mountain. This directly strengthens our ability to care for and support the most vulnerable people across the Highlands, and will be of immediate benefit. I am immensely proud of our precious workforce, who are showing an unswerving commitment to their roles and to people; each and all are an absolute credit to themselves, the organisation, the sector, and our communities.”
