This week The Jason Roberts Foundation teamed up with specialist PPE manufacturers ‘PPS’ to
work towards a post-lockdown Bridgestone Arena. Milton Keynes based PPS is a leading UK manufacturer of decontamination equipment and personal protective equipment.

A team from PPS (who have been working throughout lockdown to provide PPE to hospitals and doctors surgeries) visited the foundation’s centre this week to set up a comprehensive Covid-19 strategy. During the visit, the team marked out appropriate social distancing areas, helping to apply tape and signs, whilst also donating hand sanitiser, gloves and coveralls. They also spent time with members of the foundation implementing a Covid-19 health and safety policy. PPS donated 50 safety visors to the children who the foundation works with. The foundation also benefited from a custom-built PPS doorway basin which disinfects all shoes before entering the

Both organisations were joined by The Mayor of Brent councillor Ernest Ezeajughi who has chosen The Jason Roberts Foundation as one of his supported charities during his time in office.

Managing Director of PPS, Pam Parker said: “I’m delighted to have been able to help The Jason Roberts foundation become coronavirus-secure moving forwards. My relationship with the foundation stretches back to 2010 on several different first aid projects in the UK and Grenada. We’re pleased to be able to offer the foundation peace of mind so they can continue the great work they’re doing with young people. We’ve been working so hard at the factory over the last few months, for us, it’s been really gratifying to get a chance to see how our hard work has helped.” CEO of The Jason Roberts Foundation, Otis Roberts said: “We are so grateful for this donation from PPS. We have had to redress how we provide support to our community during the last three months and this donation of PPE will be essential to help prepare our centre to reopen. It’s essential that we are able to continue to provide a safe space to our community, and with the help of PPS, we will continue to be able to do that after lockdown.”

The Mayor of Brent councillor Ernest Ezeajughi said: “I am delighted to support The Jason Roberts Foundation and all the incredible work they are doing with young people. This donation of PPE to the foundation in preparation for their reopening after lockdown is most welcome. Thank you to PPS for their kind donation to my chosen charity.”
