Swanlea School in Tower Hamlets has donated hundreds of goggles, gloves and aprons to support NHS workers in the fight against Coronavirus. The school’s departments of Design & Technology and Science provided this equipment for the safety of doctors and nurses who are treating growing numbers of patients with Covid 19 in London.
The equipment will be used to shield NHS workers from the risk of infection. Swanlea School’s donation will ultimately save lives, by enabling medics to continue their jobs with adequate protection. Staff at Swanlea school recognised the need for goggles, gloves and aprons which would normally be used during lessons, as demand for these essential resources is now paramount within the NHS.
Sandra Obike, Head of Design & Technology at Swanlea School said:
“The plea for more PPE at hospitals and surgeries across the UK has been well documented in the press and social media. Swanlea’s Design & Technology and Science departments stepped up to the challenge to see if they could help answer that call. Together with help of Darren Moore and Fay Warby (Technicians) we were able to supply our local hospital, The Royal London, in particular the maternity department with some much needed new PPE. We were able to donate, 1000 gloves, 40 safety goggles and 200 disposable aprons. Hopefully this will help our local community and support the NHS at this time of need”.
