All materials used by the charity so far have been supplied free of charge, and each visor has a 72-hour sealing period before they can be used.
Paul Green, a Croydex company employee for almost 20 years, said: ‘With the right materials and everybody’s amazing efforts we have been able to make a real difference. By using our contacts within the re-enactment community, we have been able to make and distribute boxes of visors to establishments that have been struggling to obtain PPE. As we needed reusable packaging, I approached our Managing Director Nick McGrellis who was more than happy to donate whatever we could to help this important cause’.
Nick McGrellis, MD, added: ‘At Croydex we understand the importance of giving back. When I found out that Paul was volunteering for 4GoodPPE I wanted to make sure we helped however we could’.
