A BROMSGROVE PR agency has donated much-needed funds and personal protective equipment (PPE) to a charity during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Impression has made the donation to the Bromsgrove Anglican Youth Project, which supports engagement with young people in the local community during the coronavirus pandemic.

The funds will go towards ensuring youth workers, working alongside police and other agencies, are able to go out on to the streets securely and the PPE will assist them with social distancing and staying safe.

Mark Field, director at Impression, said: “With the coronavirus pandemic and subsequent rules and restrictions affecting the mental health of young people, there is additional pressure on all families.

"It is essential that we reach out and engage with everyone in society and get them the support they need.”

Rea-Anne Preece, of the Anglican Youth Project, Bromsgrove, said: “Young people are feeling increasingly isolated during the coronavirus pandemic and so we are extremely grateful to be able to safely go out and offer support wherever needed.”

Recognising the demand for basic PPE for key workers throughout Birmingham and Worcestershire, Impression recently donated 1,000 face masks and gloves to a number of local care homes, charities, hospices and hospitals.

Impression Communications is holding “crisis communication surgeries” for companies during the Covid-19 outbreak.

The surgeries are open daily, including weekends. Those interested simply need to post a question on any of Impression’s social media feeds or email Mark Field on mark@impressioncommunications.co.uk
