High Wycombe twins make PPE

The twins are making the most of their at home school breaks to help make PPE.

Twins Austin and Jenson from High Wycombe have been helping make PPE for health and care workers. 

The pair wanted to do their bit after seeing their mum and dad getting involved. 

Vicky and Graham are Design and Technology teachers and were inspired in a similar way to get involved after hearing about other schools using tools and materials to build visors.

Although mum and dad might be making the PPE, one of the biggest jobs falls the the five year old's; Putting the visors together. 

Austin said:

“We like clipping things together”

With Jenson adding:

“We are a bit bored because we can’t go swimming like we usually do!”

Vicky said:

“I think it’s good for Austin and Jenson to understand what is going on in the world and that it is important to help people if you can.”

Gareth Williams, Buckinghamshire Council’s Cabinet Member for Communities and Public Health says:

“I am not sure that my school break times were ever as productive as Austin and Jenson’s! Saying that, its stories like these that give us all a sense of pride in what’s happening in Buckinghamshire to combat this pandemic; this really is in the spirit of our #ProudofBucks campaign.” 

So far the family have manufactured and donated over 1,000 visors, thanks to donations of materials and funds from the community.
