JAMES Wootten (pictured below) was one of a number of technology teachers from the Helena Romanes School in Great Dunmow who turned his skill into helping out carers and health workers in Harlow.
During the Easter break James, who lives in Church Langley, and other members of the Design and Technology Department (DT) (mainly colleague Nick Beckwith) produced just over 500 face shields using the school’s laser cutter.
They were distributed by colleague Ceri Weston to carers and health workers within the local community and the surrounding areas. This included Princess Alexandra Hospital, Lister house and Church Langley medical practise here in Harlow.
When asked about the venture James modestly said ‘It got me out the house’ and revealed that DT departments around the UK have already manufactured over 200,000 pieces of PPE.
