My story

[p]Update from Tim Weston:[/p][p]We would like to advise you that we are no longer making face visors. We are delighted to have made and delivered 30,000 units to front line workers and have been overwhelmed at the generosity of supporters. Thank you everyone involved who has made this incredible project so successful.[/p][p][i]"I am pleased and emotionally proud to report that as of tomorrow all visors will have been delivered apart from a few kept back for own medical team. With the 25000 manufactured by Rutland Plastics, and approximately 5000 made with our own equipment we have been able to assemble and provide 30000 visors to front line workers. What we have all done as a community is inspiring and shows more than anything that when times get tough teamwork is key to success. I would like to thank everyone involved in this initiative. Between us we have made a difference and hopefully helped to save lives."[/i][/p][p]A huge thank you goes out to all our supporters who have made this possible.[/p][p]Together we are stronger.[/p][p]Our Design and Technology Department are making face shields for the NHS and for Key Workers who may be exposed to COVID-19. We have already provided hundreds of face shields to Peterborough ICU, as well as making hundreds more available to our local doctors’ surgeries and care homes. We plan to continue at this pace for as long as we are able to, and if we can source the resources to do so.[/p][p]Your donation will help us to purchase the plastics necessary to continue to make these shields and to cover any other associated costs (such as keeping the machines running).[/p][p]We’ve already been working closely already with Rutland Plastics in Oakham, to speed up our shield turnaround. They are injection moulding the headbands, and we will make the rest of the components. There are currently five members of the DT Department who are working hard to produce as many masks as possible. Other members of the School are helping to distribute them to where is needed too.[/p][p]Thank you so much for your support at this critical time.[/p][p]Please follow @OakhamSch for updates.
