1,000 visors produced

6 May 2020

This week we reached a milestone with 1,000 visors having been distributed to care homes, the NHS, a local hospice and other frontline health professionals. Thanks to all parents, alumnae and our wider community for supporting Woldingham's DT department in getting the visors to people who need them the most.

Alongside the visors, Alumnae Officer Katie Hogben has been putting her sewing skills to the fore making 39 NHS uniform wash bags, which went to East Surrey Hospital this week.

We also got a letter addressed to students from Jim Davey, Director of Service Development at Surrey and Sussex Healthcare Trust, which runs East Surrey Hospital, thanking us for the science goggles we donated in March. It’s good to hear our efforts are appreciated by our local community.

Now we have used up all the school’s supply of materials, the DT department has a crowd source funding campaign to pay for new materials. We smashed our initial target but we need to buy more supplies so if you would like to donate, please follow this link.

Thank you to everyone who has already supported us.
