Staff at an Irthlingborough care home were delighted with a donation of gloves and masks this morning (Thursday).

James Maziak from Maziak Compressors in Wellingborough kindly hand delivered several boxes of gloves and masks for staff at Freestones Residential Care Home in Irthlingborough.

Care home manager Claire Davidson said: "It has been an incredibly challenging time, particularly getting provisions such as PPE and food with all the restrictions in place.
