Shops in Dorchester are donating scrubs and leftover PPE equipment.

There's Personal Protective Equipment for Dorset's care sector, but other shops are offering a little extra too.

Care homes and hospitals are being stocked with protective scrubs thanks to the soft furnishing and interiors shop Margo and Mya. 

Unused blue gloves from the Highbrow Clinic have been donated to local GP surgeries.

Food outlets like Nando's, Pizza Express and Wagamama's have also donated their food stock to staff at Dorset County Hospital.

Costa Coffee also delivered their unused food to the Signature House nursing home for its staff. 

What other shops are doing:

Fitness outlets have taken their business online and are helping us stay fit and healthy. 

Hygge Wellness and The Breathing Space are offering free online videos to help people in isolation stay mentally well and healthy. 

Anytime Fitness are also releasing free work-out videos on social media for people to complete at home. 

Charlotte Spracklen, centre manager at Brewery Square, said: 

"With non-essential outlets temporarily closed, many of the Brewery Square retailers have stepped up to help key workers and the community by using their skills and stock in new and creative ways. Despite the closures, it is wonderful to hear about the efforts being made by many retailers to support the local community, and in particular our NHS and care home heroes."

"We are delighted that many of the Brewery Square retailers are delivering locally. This is a very difficult time for all businesses; however, we would like to thank our retailers who are all working extremely hard in these unprecedented circumstances to ensure visitors are able to purchase goods and services online."
