    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

    It is to no surprise that with the ongoing situation, PPE equipment is hard to get hold of, with front line nurses and doctors visiting patients everyday it can be worrying that they could catch this awful disease and then spread it to their loved ones.

    To help combat this shortage, I have spent the last week building visor headbands for Fenland based medical teams from local GP's to Midwifes, and they love the protection it gives them when compared to no protection or insufficient PPE equipment. I have since expanded to cover areas such as Bedford.

    One nurse from Godmanchester wrote the following, and hearing this made me want to help even more :

    Thank you so so much you will never know how much reassurance something o simple like a visor does to the mind of a front line nurse I have a dozen nurses who will feel safer at work because of you ... so A massive thank you!

    Following this I am wanting to spread positive news, there is no doubt that we see graphs each and every day that speak the negative impact that this is causing, so to combat this, ALL of our visors will be tracked and logged in a graph for you to see daily how many nurses your donations have helped protect.

    The target will help cover a few things which you can see below :

    - 2 Additional Printers capable of printing a total of 2 every two hours. This will help boost production

    - 3D print Filament, as much as I can get my hands on. Each reel produces around 15 visors headbands.

    - OHP Projector Film, Projector film you ask? This is used for the visor portion, and though not certified provides a lot more protection that just a mask. Any further suggestions for this is much appreciated.

    As mentioned above around positive news, i will be building a website that will highlight all donators and a graph of how many medical professionals we have helped.

    Again I would like to thank my family & friends for the support they have given me, and I am by no means done building.

      And the count is in : 1632 Visors (+603 this week) It’s has been one of the busiest weeks this week, with 80-100 visors being made a day, and orders as big of 100 at a time, it has been a challenge but have got there! Not to mention we are almost at 400% on the JustGiving page which is incredible! I have a supplier for the filament and visor sheets so have fresh stock coming direct this week (40 reels and another 1500 sheets) This weeks target is going to be around 700 as existing people are topping up :) Thankyou all!!

      Helping to put a smile on peoples faces. Have meant to put this on earlier in the week, but with the everything going on I have missed this, apologies. Earlier this week I mentioned that I was putting small packets of Haribo in each visor pouch to help keep the recipients going, thanks to Rushden Waitrose, they have donated 200 packs of mini eggs that will be part of this weeks deliveries to surrounding areas. Amazing news, Thankyou :D

      On the weekend, it is spent becoming a delivery driver to help get the visors to those who need them the most, enjoy it, time out the house to chill for a few hours. 16 Deliveries with 250+ visors in areas around Peterborough, Kettering & Bedford. 3 boxes of the 16 loaded in the car 😂
