A team of volunteers have set up a makeshift base at Worthing's Assembly Hall to make and distribute PPE plastic visors to frontline healthcare workers in Sussex.
Joining forces with national volunteer-run project 3DCrowdUK, volunteers coordinated by Transition Town Worthing are helping to plug the gap in PPE supply.
Sam Bailey from Transition Town Worthing and co-ordinator of the Sussex hub for 3DCrowdUK, said:
“It all began with an email to the Transition Town Worthing Repair Cafe from Keith Colin at Sustainable Sussex asking how we could best put our skills and resources to use during the crisis.
“We considered various options, from producing parts for ventilators to making scrubs and masks. But as the urgent need for eye protection became clear, and we saw how the 3D printing world was rising to the challenge, we jumped at the chance to join the movement and support our local NHS workers.”
