St Bart’s Begins PPE Production

Our Product Design Department is now working in collaboration with Wallingford and Mary Hare Schools to produce face shields to be delivered to local hospitals and care homes. Each of the three schools is manufacturing approximately 200 face shields per day and these are being distributed throughout Oxfordshire and West Berkshire to trusts and other charities who are struggling to procure PPE. These organisations include Wallingford Community Hospital, The Royal Berkshire Hospital, Westgate House Care Home, Katherine House, John Watson Special School and Helen House.

More than £6,000 has been crowd-funded, thanks to generous members of the public and local businesses, to buy the materials; mainly 0.5mm polypropylene and acetate binding sheets. 

If you would like to donate materials please contact Alice Walker at or


A new Laser Cutter, which was on order, will be delivered to St Bart’s this week which will enable us to more than double the amount of face shields produced. 

A huge thank you to Mr Jara, Mr Turner and Mr Lewis. If anyone knows of local health or care facilities in need of face shield/visors they can make a request by emailing
