Final PPE Update!
The GoFundMe money was transferred to us last week so we've now been able to finalise the accounts and get the payments over to the charities. In total we produced 6000 visors which were distributed across 83 different facilities. Another 1000 visors were produced by the folks at Warbases and given out in their local area.
Once the costs and fees had been taken into account there was £2883.21 left from all of your donations. We've divided this among 4 charities and made the following donations:
£720.80 to NHS Charities Together (https://www.nhscharitiestogether.co.uk/)
£720.80 to Teesside Hospice (https://www.teessidehospice.org/)
£720.80 to Veterans In Crisis Sunderland (https://veteransincrisis.co.uk/)
£720.81 to The Trussell Trust (https://www.trusselltrust.org/)
We'd like to thank every single person who donated to this campaign. We were completely overwhelmed by the generosity of all of you, both within our wargaming community and beyond. Your support helped protect people working on the frontline and your money will now continue to benefit people in so many ways.
We'd also like to thank our volunteers who came along and gave up their free time to help clean and prep the visors. Rach, Kath, Dave, Scott, Mike, Jackie, Lynne, Carl, Jess, Jimbo and Jacob! A special thanks as well to Martin, Glenn and Diane at Warbases for getting involved.
Finally, the Covid-19 pandemic is far from over but there's some light at the end of the tunnel and we can start to see our friends and family again soon. And hopefully we'll be able to meet all of you somewhere down the line and thank you in person for your support!
