Heathrow has donated a total of 16,000 FFP3 face masks to NHS personnel at Hillingdon Hospital since the outbreak of COVID-19. In addition to this, Heathrow has stepped up efforts to help local schools during the pandemic.
The airport has worked to help its surrounding community by also donating 70 laptops to local primary schools around the airport over the last two months from funds from the Heathrow Executive team, which have been raised through the recycling of airport IT equipment. Heathrow has even developed online educational resources for teachers and parents to support home schooling for those who may not be returning to class.
During this unprecedented time, offering support to the community has been critical. Last May, the UK’s hub airport donated 5,000 FFP3 face masks and 60,000 liquid bags to NHS teams, 9,500 chocolate eggs for local children and more. Additionally, the Heathrow Community Trust (HCT) granted £95,000 in rapid emergency funding for local community groups responding to COVID-19, including food banks and support services for the isolated and vulnerable.
