Covid-19 PPE – made in Rutland
April 19th – Our care homes need PPE to keep them safe from Covid-19! Staff at Aberdeen House, Uppingham were delighted to receive visors made by Uppingham School. I am so pleased that both Uppingham & Oakham Schools are making visors for use across the country. Thanks also to Northfield Farm for hand sanitizer, which is also needed .
