    Story

    Covid-19 is rapidly spreading throughout the UK and many front line NHS workers still do not have the correct PPE.

    The midton team have been sourcing the required components needed to make face shields, and a small team of midton volunteers have started assembling them, ready to start delivering early April.

    We have been contacted by organisations across Scotland that are in urgent need of these masks. Please help midton get these masks to where they need to be!

    Midton has funded the testing and production of the first 1000 masks and we are now asking for donations to help support the growing cost of this project.

    £25 buys a spool of 3d print material to keep our hobbyist volunteers producing. 1 spool = 30 masks.

    £9 buys a 10 meter roll of elastic = 30 masks.

    £20 buys 1 sheet of foam = 100 masks

    £12 buys a roll of double sided tape = 200 masks.

    This means for every £1 donated, we can make another mask to protect a frontline worker.

    Thank you for any support you give us.

      Thank you all again for your generosity. So far, we have used your kind donations to make 5000 disposable & 500 reusable masks for NHS and other frontline staff! We planned to close the page after hitting 3K to fulfil initial PPE requests, but after receiving high numbers of requests from across Scotland in the days that followed, we left the page open for additional fundraising. Our aim is to help as many people as we can, so we will continue receiving donations to fund materials to assemble & supply as many masks as possible. Thank you.

      You have all answered our calls for help and absolutely smashed our £2k target - in less than 24-hours! So far, between this page and local business donations, we've received over £4k in funding to allow us to produce both types of PPE masks - reusable and disposable for staff across Scotland. We're going to keep the page open until the end of the day, with a raised target of £3K. We will then look to fulfil the current requirements and will reopen the funding page once we've satisfied these orders. Thank You again Everyone!

      Thank you for the PPE for the Tayvallich Café and General Store. Plus the two village Automated External Defibrillators (AED). This will help to keep villagers safer during the lockdown easing.
