Teams from the Eastern section of the Tideway project have responded to a plea for spare face coverings from Nigerian Diaspora Connect (NDC)
The Tideway team dispatched 10,000 face coverings to help volunteers who distribute food to London’s homeless and the capital’s key workers, who are working long hours even after lockdown has eased. These masks will ensure they can continue their valuable volunteer service until Christmas at least. NDC is a not-for-profit organisation which aims to meet the needs of black and ethnic minority young adults and women in the UK.
Rebecca Oyibo, community relations officer for the Eastern section of Tideway commented: “We were delighted to be able to make this donation of 10,000 face coverings because we are committed to supporting the wellbeing of our communities especially at this time. We take pride in encouraging the diverse voluntary activities of our teams and colleagues because fundamentally the responsibility of building our legacy rests upon on all our shoulders.”
