The technology department of The Helena Romanes School have been making face shields, which have been distributed to carers and health workers within the community.
They made just over 500, but further demand has resulted in continued production.
One of the school’s workshops was turned into a small production area.
The new last cutter allowed them to manufacture face shields quickly and efficiently.
Once assembled, Ceri Wilson delivered them to where they were needed.
This incuded John Tasker House GP Surgery, Ropers Chemist, Yogi’s Chemist, Glendale Care Home in Felsted and Thaxted GP Surgery among a long list.
Outside of Dunmow, they were delivered to a wide range of places including Church Langley medical practice, PAH for the covid assessment area, PAH maternity ward and the ambulance bay at Rectory Lane in Harlow.
