raised of £300 target by 26 supporters

Weʼre raising £300 to make and donate protective face visors and ear savers for NHS workers, care home workers and anyone else at risk from covid-19.

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

Story

With the school building closed to most students, our fabulous Design Department have turned our idle laser cutter to good use - making protective visors and ear protectors for workers on the frontline!

We have so far made and donated nearly 2000 visors and over 4500 ear savers to 78 different places, from NHS sites and care homes to individuals working on the front line.

So far, the money for materials has come the department's own small contingency budget (which has now been used up) and a generous donation from author Margaret Foster, who donated money from the proceeds of her book, "Mudlarkers: Memories of Earning a Few Bob in Portsea".

As we have had a lot of people express an interest in donating towards the cost of materials, we have set this page up for anyone that would like to contribute.

We have put £300 as a starting target as this is how much has been spent on materials so far, so we thought that would be a good starting target for getting in additional material.

When everything has gone back to normal (and it will eventually!) we will donate any leftover/unspent money to an NHS charity to ensure your donations still go to support them 😊

    Update from the Page owner

    Wow, thank you all so much for your generosity! With shops starting to open back up soon we're expecting to get more requests in from people going back to work, so this will help us get more materials in to keep going. We have now made and delivered just under 2600 visors and almost 1000 ear savers so far!

    Wow, we are over 2/3 of the way to our first goal - brilliant to come back to after half term! We have just received our next batch of materials so work is once again commencing on the visors and ear guards 😊 Thank you to everyone that has donated!
