South & City Level 3 Enterprise in Manufacturing Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) for Health Professionals have been working on a live project with the Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity.
Ward 1 patients at the children’s hospital were given a design pack made at the Fusion Centre with the task to draw Christmas-themed face mask designs and a set of scrubs.
The winner, patient Aimee Turner, has had her winning design, titled ‘The year that Covid stole Christmas’, printed onto cotton fabric and made into 300 face masks.
Students on the Level 3 PPE Manufacturing course turned the classroom in a production room, using what they had learnt during the first weeks of their studies. Jobs were allocated to each other, ranging from cutting to sewing to quality assurance.
300 masks were successfully made in only two days, ready to be sold to students and staff to raise money for the Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity.
You can see Aimee's brilliant design and the finished limited-edition face mask below!
