As British offshore racer, Christian Toll fights COVID-19 in Poole Hospital, it has been announced today that Sunseeker International is donating Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to the hospital.
This PPE equipment consists of 400 face masks and 4000 gloves which will today be delivered to Poole Hospital, local to Sunseeker International’s headquarters.
Michael Straughan, Chief Operating Officer, commented:
We all need to do our bit in these exceptional circumstances.
We wanted to support our hardworking NHS workers as they continue their exceptional frontline work against the Coronavirus.
As we had PPE equipment available, we felt it was important to donate these to Poole Hospital to help however we can.
Christian, who races Dry Martini, a classic Cigarette hull in the British UKOPRA series and has played an instrumental role in organising races told me today:
I’ve been in Poole hospital for three days now and I’m being looked after well.
COVID-19 has been an absolute nightmare, I suffered for 10 days at home but eventually had to come to here.
I now have pneumonia which I am being treated for but know I’m in the best place.
I’m sure everyone will join me in wishing Christian a very speedy recovery.
