Scout Helps Produce Face Shields to Aid Local Hospital
By: Paul White - Scout Leader, 1st Cheriton Scout Group

A member of our Scout Group, Antoni, has been helping to produce 3D printed face shields for his local hospital during lockdown. Here is his story in his own words;

“My name is Antoni and I am 14 years old. A few days ago, I came across an article on Kent Online of a Dad from Ramsgate who has a 3D printer and has been printing these face shields for his local hospital and he talked about how multiple other hospitals are of a great need of this protective equipment. After reading this I decided to take part in this movement and I to started to print these face shields. My mum is a nurse and a midwife at the William Harvey therefore I understand how importance protective equipment is for the front-line workers. I am currently working on project for labour ward which request for at least 100 shields for their midwives and I have more requests waiting.”

The cost of printing a single face shield is approximately 40p. In order to help fund the production of these face shields Antoni has set up a JustGiving page. Any donations will be greatly appreciated.
