Our aim is to make essential PPE, and supply it at no charge to the NHS and health care workers to protect them and patients from COVID-19.

New stretch target

Our aim is to keep supplying as long as is needed, extra money will continue to let us do what we are doing.


Gary has been using 3D printers for about 3 years as a hobby and, when he found out about the lack of basic protection for workers in the hospitals and care homes he decided to put them to better use. The tipping point was when he saw the story on the news about 13 residents of a care home in Glasgow dying within a week. 

Obviously, Gary nor anybody else has any idea how long this is going to last so we are asking for a bit of help financially. Materials are currently being funded by Gary himself from overtime shifts at work, however, to keep up with demand, Gary would be unable to carry on with these extra shifts, therefore funding would dry up.

We're just asking for any donations, big or small, to help us help protect the community.

Thank you. 

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.
