Thu, 26 Mar 2020

A local charity on the Isle of Man has donated £750,000 worth of life-saving equipment for use in the Island's health service in the wake of the Coronavirus pandemic.

The Rob Vine Fund has made all of its equipment available to support the Manx community following the cessation of motorsport on the Island.

It will donate all medical equipment in storage which includes four patient ventilators, four multipurpose patient monitors, 130 scoop stretchers and all extra equipment held in stock.

Three front-line ambulances will also be made available should they be required.

Directors of the Rob Vine Fund told Energy FM News: "We remain committed to supporting the Health Service and the Manx community while the Covid-19 Pandemic continues in any way we can."
