Cramlington business makes and donates face screens to aid NHS staff
April 10, 2020
Victory Signs in Cramlington is just one example of how businesses are repurposing what they do in order to help the NHS and front line care workers during the Coronavirus crisis.
Company boss Alan Wood says he has been inundated with orders following news of the company making the screens appeared on social media.
He said “We are just a small outfit but wanted to do our bit to help the NHS. We sourced a design for the face screens online and have donated a hundred of them to the Valens Medical Partnership which includes the Brockwell Medical Group.”
“Local councillor Wayne Daley shared this news online and since then we have had a terrific response it’s gone viral. I have turned my kitchen table into an office and will co-ordinate operations from here and when the business reopens on Tuesday my son Neil will oversee production at the site.”
“This is a tough time for the business and unfortunately we have had to furlough some staff but we still wanted to do our bit.”
Cramlington Town Councillor Wayne Daley said “Alan Wood and his team really stepped up to help make the PPE equipment needed and shows what an amazing community we have in Cramlington. A huge thank you to them and all the other companies here doing their bit in the battle to beat this virus.”
