Halliford School has donated vital Personal Protective Equipment to Shepperton Medical Practice to help in the fight against coronavirus.
In these unprecedented times, we wanted to do all we can to support the local community and this seemed like the best way to help support the NHS. It has been reported nationally about the current shortage of PPE for frontline NHS staff and we wanted to do our part.
When the Headmaster contacted the Practice Manager at Shepperton Medical Practice to offer their supplies they were incredibly grateful for the support. The Practice is due to move to become a Covid-19 front line centre if required and has had enormous difficulty in providing their staff with the correct PPE so this offer could not have come at a better time.
Mr Davies, said, “We managed to provide Shepperton Medical Practice with full face masks, goggles, safety glasses, gloves, alcohol hand gel, and even disposable overalls to help keep them safe. In addition, we had a few Easter Eggs left over from our end of term gifts to students, so we donated them in order to help provide a bit of cheer to their staff, as they work so hard over the Easter period.”
Mr Davies continued, “The School will do all that we can to help, even during this period of closure and we have offered our site to the NHS request for support from local businesses and wait to see if we will be required to help here too.”
Halliford School has also been trying to cheer up passers-by and show its support for the NHS and other key workers by displaying sports cones in the form of rainbows. Since the start of the outbreak, rainbows have been appearing in windows and on social media as a sign of hope.
