CHATHAM & CLARENDON SCHOOL, RAMSGATE (Lockdown Heroes)

Believe it or not, there are many other organisations doing “Lockdown Heroes”. Have they all copied us? Or, do they all think, we copied them? It does not matter, anything that promotes positivity is great and I am not above borrowing stories from other programmes – although I will not stoop to “Lockdown Dog Heroes” which is proving popular around the country.
Members of the Design Technology dept at Chatham & Clarendon School won an award in the Daily Telegraph programme. They set up a production line to make face masks, urgently needed by local hospitals, care homes and GPs. 
As a result of some ambitious and smart thinking they actually produced around 30,000 high quality items within a few short weeks and this included raising funds, sourcing materials and working the line. Fantastic stuff, there are commercial companies who would find it hard to beat this.
