 New stretch target

Your support has been incredible. Now that we have reached the initial £10,000, we are going to continue our appeal so we can supply even more face shields to those on the front line. 

Thank you for your help so far, please continue to support this project by donating and sharing the appeal. Every £ raised goes directly to producing more face shields that will help to protect our front line workers from COVID-19.

We're raising £20,000 to get protective face shields to the front line.

***Your support helped us reach our £10,000 target in just 5 days! So many frontline workers have already benefitted from your support, so we are continuing our appeal. Our next goal is £20,000.***

Our Other Heroes is a partnership between Sports Fusion and Axial3D, designed to offer help quickly and directly to embattled medics by raising donations from businesses and individuals concerned with the business of sport.

We at Sports Fusion have built a successful business in sport over the past twelve years - we love our clients and can’t wait to have normality back. Keeping our business strong is important but will feel a bit meaningless if we don’t also try to make a contribution to the bigger effort.

Sure we are not alone in doing this – like everybody else, we can’t carry on seeing our medics dying just because they are being asked to do their job not just in extraordinary circumstances but also without the right equipment – it’s heart-breaking and unbearable and we have to make it stop. This initiative is our small contribution to what is a much bigger effort from businesses and individuals that care. 

Our particular angle has been to partner with our friends at Axial3D who are world leaders in 3D medical printing and who have devised a logistics chain that guarantees the dispatch of protective face shields quickly and directly to the surgeries, care homes and charities that need them – each shield you pay for will be dispatched within 48 hours and will ideally be in use within 72 hours – no bureaucracy, no warehouses, no delays – you donate, our partners ship.

Stay safe and many thanks in advance.


  • Each shield will cost £3.50 including shipping.
  • We will publish a list of recipients every 2-3 days.

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.
