    Weʼve raised £3,220 to Help Barking Abbey School make PPE for health care professionals

    Barking, Essex
    Funded on Wednesday, 26th August 2020

    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.


    At Barking Abbey School we have been joining the effort to make PPE for health care professionals and those at risk of infection by Covid-19

    We have been working with an Engineer (and ex Barking Abbey student), from Imperial College, to manufacture visors that can protect people from infection.

    The Design and Technology department have been using their facilities to make PPE in a disinfected environment. A number of our DT staff and other volunteers have been helping to make and distribute the visors to local healthcare locations.

    We need your donations to acquire more materials so that we can reach our target of at least 1000 visors made and distributed.

    Anything you can donate will support this small but worthwhile effort. Any extra money raised will be donated to NHS charities.

      Here is some of the tea kindly donated by Yorkshire Tea. We have also teamed up with a local company who will help produce more visors at a quicker rate. This company is run by another ex student, Robert Storey. His kind offer of support means that we can now aim to produce at least 2000 visors in the coming weeks. Thanks Robert!

      Dear supporters, Thank you so much for all your kind donations. By the middle of this week we should have reached our initial target of 1000 visors manufactured. Yesterday our second batch of 200 visors was delivered to local care homes who are dealing with Covid19. We have also received a generous donation of tea from @Yorkshire Tea. This will be added to our delivery packages as a little something for the hardworking staff in healthcare settings.
