Coronavirus: Ceredigion schools do their bit to help out in crisis

A CARDIGAN school teacher has made 655 visors for frontline health workers battling the coronavirus pandemic.

Emyr James, head of the design faculty at Ysgol Uwchradd Aberteifi, has been hard at work producing the visors with his sons in the school workshop over the last couple of weeks.

Produced on the school’s 3-D printer, more than 200 have been delivered to NHS and key workers locally – the rest are being taken to the community centre at Felinfach where they will be distributed by Ceredigion County Council.

Similar projects are also taking place at other schools across Ceredigion, including Ysgol Bro Teifi at Llandysul under the direction of Mr Walters, as well as Ysgol Bro Pedr and Ysgol Penglais,

Meinir Ebbsworth, corporate lead officer for schools at Ceredigion County Council said: “We are extremely grateful to our staff who are using their expertise and school equipment to help others.

“Ceredigion County Council is proud of the contribution that our schools are making during this difficult and challenging times, and to all our staff and volunteers who have shown such goodwill to help others.”
