A restaurant in High Wycombe has given away 9,000 aprons to the town’s hospital, to help the nurses on the front line fight against the coronavirus.

The Spindle and Thread, which is based on Bellfield Road, gave the hospital the aprons on April 6 after the former 2019 Liberal Democrat parliamentary candidate for Wycombe, Toni Brodelle, started an appeal to get businesses across Wycombe to donate surplus pieces of equipment to those on the front line.

This comes after the science departments at both grammar schools in Wycombe (the Wycombe Grammar School and the Wycombe High School), donated gloves and goggles to Wycombe Hospital.

Speaking on Twitter, Ms Brodelle said: “MASSIVE thanks to Fran from Marstons’ Spindle & Thread in Wycombe for donating 9000 aprons to our front line NHS staff in #Wycombe Hospital!

“She's also donated some chocolate to help us bring a smile or two!”

The news of the Spindle and Thread’s generous gesture has since started a chain reaction across the town, as other companies in Wycombe have since donated several necessities to the nurses.

The Sir William Ramsey School in Hazlemere has confirmed that they have donated goggles, aprons, and gloves to Highfield Surgery, whilst the Wright’s Meadow Centre gave away three bin bags worth of snacks to nurses in Wycombe.

Additionally, 3D Systems made custom 3D printed headbands to go with the acetate sheets that the nurses use/wear when helping Covid-19 patients.

The 3D printing company was then joined by the design and technology departments at both Holmer Green Senior School and the Sir William Borlase’s Grammar School, who also used their 3D printers to print off headbands and visors for the front line nurses.

Ms Brodelle also confirmed on Twitter that she had received around 200 glass laminating pouches ‘to help make visors for the NHS front line nurses’.

The laminating pouches were donated by Highworth Combined School in Wycombe.
