Making face shields for NHS

Balcarras staff supporting the NHS during Covid 19

In the current Covid 19 crisis some staff at Balcarras have been taking positive action to help provide NHS workers with PPE. Jenny Swanepoel Head of Design and Technology has started making face shields to donate to NHS workers.  So far they have made over 2000 face shields for local NHS hospital staff.

They are currently making these at school using 3D printers and other materials.  They also have a Fundraising page, they are using donations from this to buy more materials. If you would like to support this campaign then please click on this link

Jenny and her team of volunteers are happy to keep making the face shields while there is a need for them. When the need for them has passed, any donations unspent on producing face shields will be donated to Gloucestershire NHS.
