UPDATE: Due to current issues, we are in need of filtered face masks. Therefore, with the money raised I will be purchasing activated carbon cloth and filtration fabrics in order to manufacture face masks & snoods. We all need protective equipment, especially our NHS Staff & healthcare workers.
Thank you, Corrine Willis.
