Im thick !

Lads, i have to admit to being a bit thick, I was out in the shed this evening doing a few jobs when I realised that I have a good few boxes of rubber gloves, I tend to buy them when I see them so as it happens I have nine boxes of them!

Thats ppe !

Fuck me, never thought of it (thats the thick part)

Anyway im dropping them into the hospital tomorrow, but I thought it was worth mentioning on here in case any of ye have a few boxes too, or maybe we can gather a few together, people might have one box or whatever so if we can gather them up they could be given to someone who needs em.

Thoughts ?

Re: Im thick !

All PPE would be welcome. Use gloves to handle the PPE. I'm sure care homes wouldn't say no either. In France the.y asked people to give up stocks of PPE.

Re: Im thick !

I don’t think they are short gloves tbh it’s more face masks and gowns.

Thick but thoughtful.
Not sure if the gloves you have are suitable for their needs. Give them a call and ask save you making an unnecessary journey.
I have a couple of boxes of the milking gloves which I use at work hopefully they will last me through this lockdown.Trying to avoid going for supplies as much as possible.

Re: Im thick !

On advice from a local ppe distribution group (volunteers, great lads) i dropped my gloves to a local autism residential home, makes you realise there are more than just hospitals struggling.

Spot on SlowPoke, the one local to me is a whatsapp group set up by a biker called Limk BravoCharlieTango, think its on fuckbuck as well if anyone is looking for a limerick based crowd, nearly all bikers on it.
