STAFF, pupils and their families at Christ College Brecon have set up facilities to help provide much needed PPE kit to care workers.
With the heavy strain the Covid-19 pandemic continues to put on carers, NHS workers and others working on the frontline, the need for PPE is critical.
To assist in providing the much-needed equipment, Dyfed Thomas, Head of Chemistry at Christ College Brecon is overseeing the assembly, sterilisation, and packaging of face shields in one of the laboratories on the school’s site.
The initiative is being coordinated by Adam Tofarides at Crowd PPE Powys which is part of 3dCrowdUK. Adam is one of 11,000 volunteers who are 3D printing visors and is the hub manager for Mid Wales while also overseeing all volunteers in Powys. Once packaged, Crowd PPE Powys will be distributing the equipment to care homes and care workers.
A rota of volunteers, made up of staff and their families living on the school site, has been developed to maximise production while ensuring all volunteers are kept safe and social distancing guidelines are adhered to.
Gareth Pearson, Head of Christ College said: “During such uncertain times its important, now more than ever, that communities work together to support each other and those on the frontline. Carers across the UK are doing an amazing job and it’s important we do what we can to help protect them. Dyfed has done a great job setting things up and it is amazing to see our onsite staff getting involved. We feel very privileged to be able to provide the facilities to help with this initiative and to be doing what we can to help.”
Dyfed said: “It’s a wonderful thing Crowd PPE Powys have set up and it is great to be a part of it. We feel very lucky to be able to facilitate this initiative and know we are doing our bit to help those on the frontline. We have a great group helping us coordinate this and it’s amazing that hundreds of volunteers not just in Powys but across Wales and the UK are using their own equipment to help make visors.”
In order to keep producing vital PPE Crowd PPE Powys are relying on donations. These donations can be made via their GoFundMe page: https://bit.ly/3esD2wU
