WHEN Kevin McGuiness started producing protective visors for NHS staff at home he thought he might make a few dozen.

But so far Mr McGuiness from Lavington, near Devizes, has raised more than £20,000 in donations and has produced more than 2,000 masks for frontline health workers.

Mr McGuiness, who is deputy head of St Joseph’s School, Salisbury, now has a team working with him to build the masks and is determined to keep working around the clock all the time the demand still exists.

His headteacher Rachel Ridley said she had been moved to tears by the work of Kevin and his team of volunteers.

She said: “The hours they are putting in is awe inspiring.The incredible donations given by members of the public and companies who are all struggling financially has also moved me to tears.”

Mr McGuinness said: “I am blown away by the generosity of people.”

A new website www.visors.info has been set up for donations and requests.
