We've got some good news today! We've been looking for ways to help out in the current situation and after a few tests and discussions over the weekend, we are now able to produce PPE/face shields which we will be giving out to local medical facilities.

The first batch have been passed to a local hospice for them to confirm that they're happy with them and then we'll have the green light to produce a lot more.

We expect to be able to produce around 200 face shields per day and we've got enough material here for 2000 of them. Adele's mother has worked in the NHS for almost 40 years, so we're really excited about being able to help her colleagues in the frontline.

The only bad news is you've got to look at my ugly mug wearing one...

UDPATE 1: The hospice have come straight back with a resounding 'Yes please!' so we've dropped 100 shields over to them today.  50 are going to the phlebotomy department of the hospital tomorrow morning and we've had enquires for more to other facilities.

UPDATE 2: We've had a lot of people asking if they can donate towards the costs on this, so we've set up a GoFundMe page to raise the £650 needed for the next batch of materials.  This will give another 2000 shields and keep us going for the next 3 weeks.  Hopefully things will have calmed down by then and the traditional supply routes can kick back in.

Hmmm. It's good. A great idea ... but it needs a little something.

A little paint job and ...

... or just a little tinting and ...

On the right ... the red face mask ... on the right, no the other right ...


Seriously though, well done Leon and Milady's Mother hereafter to be known as "the Duchess".  Applause Applause Applause
