The Bolsover School has created and donated over 390 protective visors and 490 ear savers from its Technology department.
In April, the Technology department created and donated over 390 protective visors and 490 ear savers, in an attempt to help protect and support our local NHS workers in their fight against the Coronavirus pandemic. The visor designs helped NHS workers to protect their faces and the ear savers allow the elasticated masks that they currently use to attach at the back of their heads, thus saving their ears from becoming sore through prolonged use. Miss Whapplington, who only joined the School in April, created the visors and ear savers using materials from the school, producing all of the items in just one week.
The visors and ear savers were donated to Chesterfield Royal Hospital, who have said they are very grateful and that it would make a real difference to them. Donations have also been made to Ashgate Hospice, Haddon House Care Home, Vale Care Home, Millfield Care Home, Clay Cross Medical Centre, Lifetime Home Care, Emmett Carr Surgery and Kings Mill Hospital. As well as the donation of the visors and ear savers, The Bolsover School have also given 150 pairs of protective eye wear and 400 pairs of latex gloves from the science department to infection control at the Chesterfield Royal Hospital. Moreover, the school has donated rolls of disposable aprons to the Royal.
