A total of 2,500 protection masks, 900 coveralls and 400 pairs of goggles arrived from China and were delivered to New Cross Hospital on Friday. All of the packages are branded with the partner and co-sponsor logos.

Fosun like to personalise their packages with a positive slogan, and the latest consignment is emblazoned with a lyric from Sir Paul McCartney’s song ‘Hope For The Future’ declaring ‘We will be together, sharing the load watching in wonder as our lives unfold’. Wolves Foundation has assisted with the logistics of distribution of the PPE to New Cross.

Will Clowes, head of Wolves Foundation, said: “Fosun, Wolves and Wolves Foundation are delighted to be able to support The Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust in any way possible, and will continue to do so until we have beaten this pandemic.”

This is Fosun’s second PPE donation to the Trust and the fourth overall to medical services in Wolverhampton since the outbreak. Fosun previously donated 1,300 coveralls and 1,000 masks to the organisation last month.

The club have also made a six-figure donation to the Trust, which provides services at New Cross, West Park Hospital, Cannock Chase Hospital and several community and primary care sites. The club, through the Wolves Foundation and Wolves Wishes initiative, have also donated food parcels to Trust staff staying in the Novotel in Wolverhampton city centre. In addition, donations to the Trust from Wolves Former Players Association currently stand at over £35,000.

Molineux has also become a distribution hub for PPE to assist in the delivery of the equipment to other hospital trusts as Fosun look to help out in other areas of the country. They are University Hospitals Coventry & Warwickshire UHCW NHS Trust, Imperial College North West London Hospitals (Northwick Park), Royal Free London NHS Trust and Oxford University Hospitals. Those trusts are due to receive their PPE donation deliveries on Monday, which is all part of Fosun’s Covid-19 Global Relief Programme.
