Mayfield Community Steps Up with PPE

The Mayfield Community responded to the needs of the day by providing urgently-needed PPE during the height of the pandemic

During the autumn term, Mr Warren (History) and Mr Rees-Moorlah (Ceramics) put the School’s dormant 3D printers to good use and produced over 700 face visors for local front-line healthcare workers at a number of locations including the Hospice in the Weald; GP surgeries in Mayfield, Tonbridge, Bexhill, Heathfield, and Buxted; Covid-19 Response Hubs in Eastbourne and Hastings; Brighton Hospital; Chichester Hospital Intensive Care Unit, and Holy Cross Priory Care Home.   

Mrs Budden (Textiles) and her team also worked tirelessle making isolation gowns and scrub bags for local hospitals and doctors’ surgeries in the Wealden area. And, they made 30 fabric cotton masks for Apley Grange Care Home in Harrogate, North Yorkshire – an SHCJ Care Home where Mayfield’s beloved Sr Anne and Sr Teresa Joseph are spending their retirement.  

We are also very proud of OC Amber (Yoyo) Lei (Class of 2012) who used her own initiative to source 10,000 medical grade face masks from Hong Kong for frontline workers in the UK, arranging all the logistics herself, and passing the masks on to Mayfield for distribution where they are needed. We would like to say a big “thank you” to Amber on behalf of all the local surgeries and hospices who have benefitted from her foresight and generosity.
