The D&T department have now made 2000 face shields due to the extremely generous donations from the community. Over the last week we have had 3D printed parts, rolls of elastic and A3 laminating pouches donated in their hundreds. A big thank you to anyone who has given money towards the ‘Go Fund Me’ page ( gf.me/u/xw9cau) ​All of these funds will go towards the materials needed to produce the masks.
