Winner of the Franco-British Business Award for Community Impact, Decathlon donated snorkelling masks to NHS hospitals to aid in Covid-19 treatment.

Early in the pandemic, sports retailer Decathlon stopped sales of their full-face snorkel masks to donate their supply to hospitals across Europe, at a time when respirators were in short supply.

Thousands of their EasyBreath masks were retrofitted by medical professionals and used as C-PAP ventilators for treatment of Covid-19 patients by health services including the NHS and the Foundation Hopitaux de Paris.
