NHS Donations

NHS donations

Remarkable NHS staff from ICU, Fairfield Hospital in Bury, showing some of the laundry bags and headbands made up by Heywood resident Angie Spencer-Jones, using cord donated by Ibex Marina Ropes.


Ibex Marina donate to Covid 19 fight

This is the latest batch of 2,000 draw cords donated to a local sewing hub, voluntarily sewing laundry bags for NHS staff.

This batch was donated to the Women’s Institute in Mossley.

We have supported the local Heywood sewing group who, in turn, have given some of our supplies to the Bury, Oldham & Rochdale Scrub Hub.

These volunteers are doing an incredible job in getting essential supplies of support equipment to key workers on the front line and we will continue to support them with these donations.

Please feel free to contact us on 01706 360363 or sales@ibexmarina.com should you have any local sewing groups that may need our support.

Covid 19 Statement – April 2020

Covid-19 trading update


During these unprecedented times, our priority has been the health, safety and well-being of all our employees. To this end, we have been able to agree to furlough a good number of colleagues.

We do, however, have customers engaged in the supply of equipment to the NHS, Network Rail and the Ministry of Defence, among other critical organisations, who have significant demand for our products, and to this end we have a dedicated team working safely and within Government guidelines in terms of social distancing and hand hygiene in continuing to provide our products accordingly.

Our customers in these critical arenas have asked that we remain open and we will do so as long as our services are needed.

We will update this message as often as necessary.
