New stretch target

We are looking at what else we can manufacture to support our stretched front line healthcare staff. We have goggles in our sight, so to speak.


Create Oldham is strongly rooted in Oldham and the surrounding communities, so it’s only natural that when a crisis comes along like the current Covid-19 situation we want to do whatever we can to help.

 We are open to all ideas about what form that help might take, but our current project is to manufacture face shields for NHS staff. This involves a combination of 3D printing, laser cutting, and of course getting the finished products to where they’re needed.

 We are working closely with the NHS to ensure that what we make is fit for purpose and what’s needed. We’ve already had offers of support from some local companies and a number of our members have been busy testing prototypes.

We want to give these visors to those who need them free of charge, or at most at the cost of materials. This is where you come in. We need to order in materials from suppliers and pay for them upfront, and for this we need to have funds available. If you can help even a little bit please do. Every penny counts. 

 If you or your company can help in any way, we’d like to hear from. Any help at all will make a big difference.

 

We ask project owners to honour their rewards wherever possible but please note that all pledges are donations and there is no guarantee that you will receive any rewards from the project owner. Please see Crowdfunder's Terms of Use for more information regarding rewards for pledges.

Let's make 'Covid 19 Visor Project' happen
