Dan Hill, Rosemere Cancer Foundation’s chief officer, said: “Having to wear masks daily for prolonged periods of time can make your lips very dry and sore and cause cracking at the sides of your mouth. We are therefore very grateful to Concept Plastics Group Ltd for its very generous donation of Lipmate Lipbalm for centre staff.

“We are distributing the lip balm among the team as fast as we can. It’s literally being greeted with smiles of relief and needless to say, proving very popular.”

Concept Plastics Group Ltd is one of the UK’s leading injection moulding companies with more than 20 years’ heritage.

It has previously donated lip balms for NHS staff care packs during the first wave of Covid-19 in the spring and also, in 2015 when they were sold to support Rosemere Cancer Foundation’s appeal to raise £100,000 towards the build of Burnley General Teaching Hospital’s state-of-the-art chemotherapy Primrose Unit.
