We are very excited to welcome Nicki Shields to UK Mask Force as an ambassador for West London. Together we aim to raise more awareness for shortages in PPE and further donations for supplies to frontline health workers.

This is a remarkable team of volunteer professionals who have recently come together in response to the pandemic crisis within the Health Care Community – especially Care Homes and Hospices for whom the NHS is not responsible, and many of which have been starved of personal protective equipment (PPE).

They are partnering with a UK manufacturer of PPE to produce up to 2 million items of PPE per month which are available for sale at their new online shop, with the profits of which go to UKMF to fund donations of PPE to those in greatest need. So if you need reliable PPE at competitive prices, please visit their online shop in the knowledge that the proceeds will hugely help those in greatest need amongst our dedicated Health Care Workers. We must protect them now and in the future.
