DescriptionThe small team behind the production consists of Tom Abram, Andrew Baker, Sam Walsh, Nick Rennison and Dr Allan Rennie from the Engineering Department at Lancaster University.

The team have collectively assembled visors which have been given to the Royal Lancaster Infirmary for the front line team. The team stated: “There is also Dr Allan Rennie who has been coordinating with the NHS contact and ordering all the materials for us to use. He is an academic in the department who is working remotely as he can’t come in.

The Trade Union, Unison, have donated £600 to help us with material but the rest has come from LPDU accounts. There is also about 3000 curtain hooks that we made for the emergency beds, there is some info about that on our twitter feed. We made an injection mould tool for that and made all the hooks in less than one week from getting the request.”
