Hunterston B has made a further donation of PPE to organisations in Ayrshire.

Almost 1000 face masks have been distributed by the power station between Ayrshire Cancer Support, the Ayrshire Hospice and district nurse teams in Largs and Troon.

Station director, Paul Forrest, said: “We have been able to release some of our stock of PPE for use in the community as part of our efforts to support the local COVID-19 response.

“The people working and volunteering for these organisation do an important job and I’m pleased to have been able to give them support at this time.”

Nicola George, from Ayrshire Cancer Support, said: “The donation of masks to Ayrshire Cancer Support has been invaluable, particularly as we haven’t been able to source any ourselves. They are being used by our volunteer drivers who take immunosuppressed patients to hospital for their cancer treatment. By our drivers wearing masks, it significantly reduces the risk of infection being passed to these extremely vulnerable individuals. We can’t thank you enough EDF for helping to protect the most vulnerable in our community.”
