Tytherington-based Beech Hall school’s recently opened Design and Technology building has been transformed into a PPE production line. Beech Hall school has created 300 pre-assembled protective visors for six local care homes in the Maria Mallaband Care Group.

Beech Hall’s Design and Technology teacher Colin Richards, his son and other pupils have utilised the school’s equipment, including a high-tech laser cutting machine, to manufacture and assemble the critical items.

Headmaster James Allen said  “We feel privileged to be able to offer support to those working relentlessly on the frontline in our local community, as they admirably support us at this unprecedented, and very worrying time. As a school, it is important that we do as much as we can to put our time and technological resources to good use. Our pupils have really stepped up to the mark in producing vital equipment that is currently in such high demand, to help keep key workers and their families safe.”

Danielle Whittaker manager of Carmel Lodge & Hope Green residential and residential dementia care homes in Poynton part of the MMCG family said – A massive thank you to everyone at Beech Hall school  Tytherington. This is such a lovely donation and shows what a wonderful community sprit the school staff and pupils have. Hopefully we will be able to arrange a visit to the school to say thank you properly once restrictions have been lifted
