A Lincoln based sportswear clothing company are switching production to face masks to help tackle the coronavirus outbreak.
Ellmore Clothing launched in 2013 and has sold sports clothes worldwide, but are now combatting the face mask shortage by launching their own range.
Dan Ellmore, the company’s owner and also organiser of the Lincoln Grand Prix cycling festival, spoke to The Lincolnite about the move.
“Following discussions last week we decided to use the capacity of up to 500 sports clothing garments per week to make facemasks as there is a worldwide shortage and a great need for them at present.”
“Production will continue while there is a demand and up to 10,000 a week can be produced.”
“The disposable ones will be in packs of 5 for £10 and packs of 10 for £20 plus postage.”
