Protecting the NHS
Since the outbreak of Covid-19 our lives and communities have changed dramatically. None more-so than the hard-working and selfless NHS, GP and care staff on the frontline. However, those heroes on the front-line need PPE so that they can continue their roles as safely as possible and ultimately save lives.
To further this cause, the Wrexham secondary school has been transformed into a hub to increase the production of face visors for our front-line NHS and care setting staff. The programme will utilise existing 3D printer technology with a design approved by Bangor University.
Donations for the Wrexham Hub Face Visor Project
Donations will be used to purchase raw materials for any school or college in the area and additional 3D printers to boost capacity. The 3D printers and materials will be distributed to local schools after the pandemic.
An individual donation of £10 will purchase enough equipment to produce 20 face-visors for local NHS and care staff. A 3D printer would cost approximately £200 and would enable the programme to increase production of face-visors, if individuals, community groups or local businesses would like to donate a printer please contact Cllr Phil Wynn by email Phil.Wynn@wrexham.gov.uk.

Any surplus funds will be passed on to BCUHB’s COVID19 response fund.
