    Weʼve raised £7,850 to Buy materials to 3D print PPE for the NHS in the battle against COVID-19

    Twickenham
    Funded on Saturday, 9th May 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.

    Story

    With the NHS in dire need of PPE to try and protect themselves on the front line dealing with COVID-19, the wonderful people of 3D Crowd are coordinating an amazing effort. Anyone with 3D printers can print the relevant parts and they will coordinate getting them to the Hospitals where they are needed.

    As the big fat pause button has been pressed on all industries (including the Film industry), it's time we did our part. I have brought home 4 of my 3D printers from the studio and have set them up in the shed (glamorous). They are now printing 24/7 to help this scheme.

    If you feel you can donate anything to help cover running/material costs, that would be amazing. This is a non profit making venture.

    With 4 machines I am currently making 16 a day which makes 112 units per week. I am churning through the materials, so anything you can put towards this is a big help. If there are any funds remaining I will forward to the NHS.

    Stay safe and healthy out there sausages!

      A huge shout out to Mr Skelton and Mr Ticehurst from St Richard Reynolds Catholic College. They have been 3D printing and laser cutting to support the PPE distribution to care homes in the local area. They are producing even more of the much needed visors using the funds raised here. Your money has reached much further than I had ever hoped. Please Help us to continue this support by spreading the word of this just giving page. Thanks also to the 3D printers in twickenham/UK film industry unsung heros funded by you. Stay safe and healthy Jim

      Your money is doing so much good it's just amazing. A local school has opened its DT department and we are funding their filament which is outstanding. This is all getting to the front line as soon as possible. Yesterday I dropped of 20 face shields to a local care home, they didn't have enough PPE due to such a shortage and couldn't physically buy it. 2 more care homes are next in line for deliveries very soon! When they find out there is no charge, I explain that is is thanks to you all. Keep spreading the word & we can keep supplying. Jim

      The funds are still coming in and you are all so amazing thank you. 3D crowd uk have had 2 large deliveries from my printers and they have gone straight to helping the need for PPE. So far over £4000 has been spent directly on materials for over 20 machines and rising. A Local Children's hospice were bought much needed surgical face masks whilst they waited for their next much needed delivery. Princess Alice hospice were bought 200 boxes of gloves as they were in dire need. Jim
