Since the local Thompson family from Lytham had to sadly close their doors for routine appointments at Thompson and Hardwick Opticians , together, with support from Matthew Sugden from Virtual Living Studios, they started to make and donate 3D printed face shields for key workers who were in desperate need of PPE. The response they have had for donations has been phenomenal.
So far, as at 13th April, 400 face shields have been supplied to…
• Blackpool Victoria Hospital
• The Ashley Foundation
• Trinity Hospice
• And more….
They currently have requests from:
• Fylde Council
• Century Healthcare
• Fylde Domiciliary Adult Services
• Salford Royal Hospital
• Blackburn Hospice
• To name but a few….
This has been a 24/7 ‘not for profit’ operation for both families. Each face shield costs around £1 to produce.
