Christopher Whitehead Language College & Sixth Form – supporting the community during COVID19

06 May 2020

When the Covid19 virus closed schools, the Christopher Whitehead Language College & Sixth Form were quick to react. Not needing the school’s PPE for some time, they packed together 153 new safety specs, 211 used safety specs and various items such as disposable gloves from the Science department to help support the doctors and nurses in Worcester.

Not content with that they then set about making protective visors which have also been delivered to Worcestershire Royal Hospital.

Di Howland, Funding and Events Manager, told us: ‘147 protective visors have been fabricated by the school teachers, they’ve only stopped production because they have run out of supplies.

 ‘We funded a further £150 with our own money, which has now run out. A GoFundMe page has been set up and we have been overwhelmed with messages of support. We have spent the first £500 raised and that should net us around 1000 more masks. These will go to Acorns Children’s Hospice as well as Worcester Royal.

 ‘If you are a DT dept. and you want to get involved let us know and we can supply materials and templates. All you need is a laser cutter.’

‘You can support our fundraising and win prizes by registering  www.WorcesterLottery.org and search for Language College 
Sign up for just £1 per week. 50% of all tickets sold from our page go to us!’

Christopher Whitehead Language College & Sixth Form would love to hear from anyone that can help with obtaining supplies.
