Because Only Together We Can
PPE Hwb Wrecsam: Providing face visors to help you stay safe
We Facilitate Safe Working Spaces
The face visors we distribute are used to help to protect the eyes and face from spatter, from a COVID19 sufferer coughing or sneezing.
The visors have a clear plastic front, with an adjustable headband to suit different size heads.
PPE Hwb Wrecsam has the ability to fulfill orders from single visors into the hundreds.
We have since expanded our stock to include disposal face masks, hand sanitiser, disposable aprons and more. All of this is FREE of charge.
Every face – every place
We aim to cover every face that needs protecting from Covid-19
We aim to help the public to feel safe. We know that people are worried about returning to work and our visors are part of the solution to keeping safe.
We have already provided several thousand face visors to numerous health and social care settings, including provision for the NHS through Awyr Las. We have provided, and continue to provide, face visors to all those who will benefit from them; from volunteers to churches, from schools to childminders, from care workers to unpaid carers, from shielded members of the public to the deaf community, from hairdressers to retail workers, to name just a few. We aim to be part of the solution.
Who We Are
Situated in Wrexham, North Wales we are a group of volunteers distributed face visors to aid in the protection against COVID 19.
During the first week of lockdown 2 brothers, Isaac (11) and Joseph (13), built up a 3D printer they had been given for Christmas.
They had been challenged by their parents to produce some PPE.
By the Friday evening they had produced their first rather shaky headband for a face visor. A rummage in a cupboard found some old OHP acetate and the project was born.
Within days the people of Wrexham and further afield were donating old acetate sheets, then filament for 3D printers, and then the printers themselves to try and keep up with the demand for face visors in local care homes and other community projects.
A group of volunteers started working 24/7 in Ysgol Clywedog.
Within a few weeks the group had set up a Community Interest Company, as the ability to injection mould the visors at an even faster rate became a possibility.
By July 2020 we moved to the Gresford Memorial Hall to distribute PPE from there, until forced to move by the reopening of the Hall to the public as the first lockdown ended.
We got ourselves up and running in Llay Industrial estate, before finally shifting to a more remote distribution, continuing to distribute PPE free of charge.
