The Chinese group handed over another batch of personal protective equipment (PPE) to staff at New Cross Hospital last week.

It was the company's third PPE donation to New Cross – and fifth overall to medical services in the city.

Wolves Foundation helped with the logistics of the distribution of the equipment to staff.

Will Clowes, head of Wolves Foundation, said: “Fosun, Wolves and Wolves Foundation are delighted to be able to support the Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust and New Cross Hospital in any way possible, and will continue to do so until we have beaten this pandemic.”

Fosun, which likes to personalise their packages, emblazoned a lyric from Sir Paul McCartney's song "Hope for the Future" on the parcels.

It read: "We will be together, sharing the load watching in wonder as our lives unfold."

Wolves' owners have previously donated 1,300 coveralls and 1,000 masks to the Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust in March and 2,500 protection masks, 900 coveralls and 400 pairs of goggles in April.

The club has also made a six-figure donation to the trust, which runs New Cross Hospital, West Park Hospital, Cannock Chase Hospital and other care sites.

Food parcels have also been delivered to staff – with former players, ex-managers and supporters raising more than £50,000 amid the coronavirus fight.
