Medical technology manufacturer Pennine Healthcare has donated £200,000 of supplies to help support the people of Ukraine.

The emergency donation from the firm, which includes face masks, dressings, bandages, sanitizer and gowns, has been sent to Nova Poshta (Help Ukraine), a Ukrainian delivery service, which will distribute the supplies to those most in need.

Pennine has worked with Active Freight Southampton and Uniworld Logistics to arrange the logistics.

The firm is one of the UK’s leading manufacturers and distributors of single use, sterile ward and theatre consumables and custom procedure packs, as well as being one of the leading suppliers of PPE into healthcare settings.

Today, it markets and distributes products in over 50 countries worldwide, employing around 180 people at its purpose-built premises in Derby.

Pennine’s medical supplies will be critical in helping those harmed by war.

The firm said it hoped its support would hopefully play a small part in the relief efforts in Ukraine and neighbouring countries.

Graeme Cameron, chief executive at Pennine, said: “We are fortunate to work in an industry which has ‘purpose’ and the ‘protection of life’ at its core – and we could not stand back and allow a humanitarian crisis to unfold without us helping.

“We are an employee-owned organisation and that gives us a unique position to help others first.

“We hope that this donation will help the people of Ukraine and we wish that peace comes soon.”
