Can you offer masks to Strathcarron?

Strathcarron Hospice urgently needs key items that our readers may be able to help them with - face masks.

The Denny-based hospice which provides palliative care to patients from Cumbernauld and Kilsyth has run short of masks which need to be worn by visitors and non-medical staff.

Staff teamed up with Cumbernauld Action Care for of the Elderly (CACE) in a bid to boost the number of masks being made available.

They stress that any amount of masks however small would be gratefully received.

Anyone who can help is being asked to contact the charity on 01236 451393.

Alternatively, the hospice itself can be contacted via 01324 826222.

Meanwhile we have been asked about an article published several weeks ago which can enable deliveries of free plastic visors

These would seem to be in greater demand than ever as the Scottish Government stated that faces should be covered in shops.

The details of how to access the protective perspex face coverings - which are in fact used in Strathcarron- remain the same .

The visors, which are being made by schools in our local authority, can be ordered from [email protected].

As these vital items are funded purely by crowdfunding, there is also a special page where donations can be made for the masks.

This can be accessed via a Go Fund Me page on and the same web page as above.
