Supporting the NHS
Using our expertise, technological equipment and materials we reworked our operations to create personal protective equipment. Using our Zund cutter and sewing facilities we were able to develop masks, hand sainting stations and social distancing POS.
In a matter of days, we were able to donate over 50 visors to Leeds General Infirmary and 20 to Bywater Hall and Lodge care home. In a couple of weeks, we surpassed our expectations and created and donated hundreds of PPE. This would not have been possible without the support of public donation, we raised £4,000 and have produced 2,900 visors, including a set of special visors designed for children’s hospices with a colourful rainbow motif. The equipment has been delivered to care teams across the UK, including in Rotherham, Leeds, Newcastle, Sheffield and Glasgow.
