With the help of my studio staff I will be helping the Visor Army produce protective visors for healthcare professionals across London. The current scenario meant an extraordinary shift in the way we live our lives and re-evaluation of what is important. No-one is unaffected and all support, little or big, is a step closer to better days. The visors are simple to make and no special skill is required. Visit their Facebook page (link in bio) for more info on how you too can help from your home. They now need willing individuals, factories, small businesses or production units to help strengthen the community effort. Visor Army – Make a Visor, Save a Hero #visorarmy are a community-based volunteer group making medical Visors at home, for use by ICU doctors and nurses across London hospitals. The brainchild of ICU Consultant Deborah Braham, the protective Visors are made using a glue gun and 3 simple components: acetate sheets, foam padding and elastic. 3000 visors have been used across London hospitals to date, and more are being requested every day! These Visors are vital protective equipment for ICU staff, and help save their life, every time they are worn. This silent army marching behind our front line NHS staff, have brought hope to many and key protection to those who need it most. How can you help? They now need factories, small businesses or production units to help strengthen the community effort and help to make Visors too! Can your business help? Components are provided. The Visor Army are also grateful for donations to buy supplies, via their go fund me page here https://www.gofundme.com/f/akhqf-make-a-visor-save-a-hero?utm_medium=copy_link&utm_source=customer&utm_campaign=p_lico+share-sheet Connect with us via our Facebook group. #visorarmy #makeavisorsaveahero Visor Army is supported by The RoseTrees Trust www.rosetreestrust.co.uk
