Face Shield Fundraiser

Staff at Amery Hill School have risen to the challenge and are now manufacturing protective face shields for the NHS, as part of the national effort to increase the availability of PPE for frontline NHS staff.

Teachers have designed and are producing a face shield using the school’s laser cutter, with over 800 face shields already having been delivered to local GP surgeries, care homes, hospices and hospitals.  The design involves laser cutting a polypropylene headband and attaching it to a clear PVC screen. Miss Kate Scott, one of the school’s DT teachers, who has been the driving force behind the project commented, “we have the capacity to make up to 200 face shields a day, with colleagues assisting in the DT workshop to laser cut the headband, shape and cut the visor and assemble and clean the face shield. I have been delighted at how quickly we have been able to respond to help our local NHS heroes. Our next challenge, however, will be to source additional materials to enable us to continue production.”

We are fundraising to cover the cost of materials, with any surplus funds being donated to NHS Charities.  Any amount you are happy to donate will be gratefully received and will mean we can continue production.
