Free PPE face shields for health workers

Hi I’m Adam Willoughby,

I live and work in Telford, Shropshire and have found a way to turn my 3D printing hobby into joining the national effort to produce Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to combat COVID-19.

I'm working open source to print face-shields and in addition to producing PPE myself, I’m also working to co-ordinate a regional effort with other volunteers who have access to 3D printing to collectively distribute to Hospices, Pharmacies and Hospitals in my local area.

We have already made over 100 units using my own money and I’m aiming to make a further few thousand. As the Coronavirus continues to spread (adding pressure on the NHS) and as my contacts in this area grow, I’m seeing increased demand, so to help reach this target, I’m now asking for donations to keep this effort going.

I am asking for donations to help fund:
-Print filament PLA for the head bands,
-A4 over head projector (OHP) plastic for the shields,
-To purchase additional printers to speed up my production line
-To reimburse the volunteers for power usage resulting from running their 3D printers 

After COVID-19 has passed, I will be donating any additional 3D printers to local schools and collages and any surplus money will be given to charity.

Thanks for your support.
