The UK has entered its “largest recession on record” as coronavirus lockdown measures pushed the country into the worst economic slump of any other G7 nation. The economy shrank 20.4% in the second quarter of the year
Almost three quarters of a million British jobs have been lost since the start of the COVID-19 epidemic:
The UK government has mandated that face masks have to be worn in enclosed public spaces:
But nearly all the disposable masks you can buy are made in China
We’re planning to set up a UK factory making British face masks, creating new jobs for people who’ve lost their jobs during the Pandemic and helping the Economy recover from the Recession.
We need to Crowdfund in order to raise the money to buy the equipment, rent the premises and pay the workforce during our ramp-up phase
When we start production, our Crowdfunders will receive a reward of forty masks for every £10 they’ve donated. That’s 25 pence per mask! Half of what you’d pay in a supermarket. The masks will be made using high specification materials.
So. Help the UK to climb out of recession, create some replacement jobs and get yourself some masks at around half the price of what you’d pay elsewhere! We also intend to donate free of charge something between 5% and 10% of the masks we produce to deserving causes such as foodbanks, charitable organisations, voluntary organisations etc. Our Crowdfunders can suggest suitable causes, or if they want, donate their own mask Reward into the Charities Pool.
