Face shields made by two children donated to home care workers

Two children in Huddersfield have been producing face shields & have donated a supply of them to care workers at
Caremark Kirklees to use during the COVID-19 crisis.
Thomas Hill, aged 10 & sister 12-year-old Ellie, have been building the face shields for staff working on the front line during the pandemic.

It all began when Thomas began experimenting with the design of a face shield. His mum Margie then sourced a company which had a pre-approved design for face shields and agreed to supply the children with the components needed.
