To the Royal British Legion and UK Mask Force

We wish to express our extreme gratitude to you for managing to source and provide critical PPE supplies for Care Homes and Doctors surgeries during these trying times. It was an honour to meet the team who came to present the PPE to Maurice House Care Home and the generous donation of face masks to our surgery as well!

We wish you all the best with this venture and hope to meet again.

Kind regards

The Doctors and Staff of Mocketts Wood Surgery
