Art Academy London raises £10,000 for PPE in less than 24 hours

Wednesday July 29, 2020

Thanks to all of your donations, Art Academy London have raised enough money to buy two 3D printers to print protective face masks for NHS staff. Taking only 12 hours to raise enough for one printer and another 4 to buy a second. This is evidence of the brilliant community that the Academy is a part of.

Our Sculpture Pathway Leader, Julian Wild, has printed over 1000 visor bands, which have been sent to several care homes and surgeries. We are now also an NHS supplier, so our visor bands are being sent directly into an NHS pool, to be sent where they are most needed.

We have been really pleased to see photos of the PPE in use at a care-home in Chichester. Thank you health heroes!
