Uppingham school teacher Clive Simmons asks people in Rutland and Stamford areas to help him make visors for NHS

But, thanks to the incredible generosity of people in the community, the fund smashed that target and shot over £5,000 within 24 hours, meaning Clive’s products can protect thousands more NHS employees, care home workers and others in essential face-to-face roles during the coronavirus lockdown.
