PATRICK Carberry, Head of Design and Technology at King’s Ely Senior, has spent most of his Easter break so far making personal protective equipment (PPE) face shields for local care company, Mihomecare Cambridgeshire.

Mr Carberry has managed to make an impressive 110 face shields so far, all of which were delivered to the company’s offices in Ely today (April 6th).

Jonathan Short, Registered Manager at Mihomecare Cambridgeshire, said: “These face shields really will make a significant difference to our care teams, who are delivering frontline care to some of the most vulnerable people in the Cambridgeshire community.

“PPE has been a challenge to source. Every day our care staff experience new challenges, continuing care to those recovering from Covid-19 or showing symptoms, these shields will bring confidence and safety to the people we look after, our carers and their families.

“From everyone at Mihomecare Cambridgeshire, thank you Patrick and King’s Ely!”

Mr Carberry isn’t planning on stopping there though… He’s busy making more as we write this post to donate to other companies and organisations whose staff are working on the frontline!
