As the world faces an extraordinary challenge, Marr Procurement is focusing efforts towards supporting Charities and Care homes in the fight against COVID-19.

Marr Procurement has donated 30,000 face masks to fifteen randomly selected clients – mainly charities – supporting those on the front-line to keep safe and support efforts to tackle the virus.

These much-needed supplies will be hand-delivered by Marr Procurement employees who will drive to clients in their own cars, following social distancing guidelines of course.

Many of their clients, including charities, care homes and national housing organisations, were battling – due to unprecedented demand as well as a lack of time and resources – to not only to get hold of essential PPE but also struggling to get hold of trusted suppliers to order stock at acceptable prices.


Christoph Marr, the CEO and Founder of Marr Procurement, said:

“There are three million Social Care and NHS heroes in the UK, all of whom are relying heavily on PPE during this crisis. In times like this, we should all be helping others.

“The whole Marr Procurement team felt we should give back to our community of amazing clients who have supported the growth of our business over the last five years. That’s why we bought, have donated and will personally distribute 30,000 face masks, most of which will go to our charity clients. 

“We are determined to help those in need to get through this crisis. I’m delighted that we can support our clients, in a small way, by donating these much-needed masks. As prices of PPE soar, with supply far outstripping demand, my team are working round the clock to help our clients source PPE quickly, from reputable sources and at acceptable prices

“We have been overwhelmed by the response following our donation of masks and would urge all those who benefit from the Health and Care sector to do something to help our care workers, regardless of how small.”

Patrick Ryan, CEO at crisis charity, Hestia, said:

“The biggest thank you to Marr Procurement for your gift of 2,500 face masks for Hestia’s staff so we can continue to keep our Care homes, and supported housing, open and our staff and residents safe. The current crisis is bringing out the best in people and Marr Procurement’s generosity is further proof of this.”
