Greg and Fran Smith received a delivery of visors for the work of the emergency food hub in Tile Hill from the Rugby PPE Response initiative which was started by Dr Keith Edgar a recently retired Rugby GP.
Keith linked with the Head of School, Department of Engineering at Coventry University and they have been producing 300 visors per week. The visors have been distributed to care homes, nurses who were not classed as critical care front line workers and Foodbank staff. He has been supported by the Westside Medical Centre in Rugby, who managed the distribution process.
The main funding came from a local business man and was also supported by Friends of the Hospital of St Cross.
