Norfolk County Council helped in coronavirus pandemic by companies including Lovells, Morgan Sindall, Norse, Wilko and McDonalds

Companies ranging from retailers to housing developers have been praised by Norfolk County Council for joining forces in the face of the coronavirus pandemic for the greater good of the community.

Lovells, which has carried out several major projects in West Norfolk including housebuilding and Lynn's Hillington Square regeneration scheme, are among those who have rallied round.

Lovells and construction group Morgan Sindall have donated personal protective equipment to the county council.

Others to offer help include Norse, which is donating food to homelessness charities and foodbanks; Wilko is donating handwashing products to use as liquid soap; and McDonalds is donating hand sanitiser and boxes.

County council leader Councillor Andrew Proctor said: “In these exceptional times, it is heart-warming to see how companies are pulling out all the stops to work with us to support the NHS and the community.

“It’s a great example of how we are working better together, for the good of Norfolk. These are examples of the positives that are coming out of these worrying times.

“The county council continues to work with suppliers and the Government to ensure that our supplies of personal protective equipment remain well stocked, but every bit we can source locally helps with that resilience.”
