Emmaus Suffolk is a independent local charity and offers a new and different way of increasing the chances for the homeless and long term unemployed in Suffolk.

They require around 150 masks for their staff, volunteers and service users. Your purchase would go direct to them. Once purchased we will inform Emmaus and we will let them choose the mask colour.

We are working with Emmaus Suffolk to offer this as they have identified that they and their users could benefit from these products.

They will reach Emmaus on a weekly basis when we delivery them.

These masks, are like all the masks we offer...This is not PPE designed for hospitals or healthcare workers. This is a face cover that is designed for use by the general public to reduce the risk of transmission (both ways). As individuals can be pre-symptomatic and/or asymptomatic, the masks we are offering are about reducing risk.
