With construction works coming to an end as part of the process to limit the spread of Covid-19, all of us in the demolition and construction sectors have a duty and obligation to the communities that we serve.

While the Government is mobilising resources, there are significant shortages for frontline staff in the NHS, GP practices and social care sectors. Cantillon and DeGroup are therefore encouraging the demolition and wider construction sector to retain a base stock of PPE and make the rest available to those frontline services who need it far more at this time. 

Cantillon and DeGroup are pulling together their resources to reach out to our competitors, peers and partners to seek quantities of excess masks, overalls, glasses and gloves. You have the ability to save lives by doing so, no donation is too small!

Cantillon and DeGroup have contacts within the NHS and Emergency Services who have already said this equipment would be gratefully received. They may use it themselves or indeed direct us to the Vulnerable Groups. The fact is, it can do a lot of good, but not while it sits on our shelves gathering dust.

Cantillon can manage collection and distribution and your contribution will make a huge difference and potentially save many lives.
