Futures Institute staff showed their support for frontline care workers by making nearly 100 visors for protection against the coronavirus after receiving an email asking for help from a member of staff at Agnes Court Care House in Banbury.
Head of Engineering and Construction, Lyndon Jeremiah and Ralph Jones, our engineering technician were inspired to step forward, making and delivering around 75 visors to the care home. Some visors have also been dropped off at Beech Haven care home in Chipping Norton.

Yin-Chien Yeap, founder of Playko: The Play Kompany, which is based at Futures Institute, used a 3D printer to also create some visors that have been handed to Agnes Court.
Julia Ingham, vice principal at the academy, said: ‘‘We were delighted to be approached by one of our local care homes, Agnes Court, to support them by providing visors at this time of crisis.
‘’We pride ourselves on being a school at the heart of the community and their willingness to approach us was a clear indication of this.
“We are all in this together and we are delighted to be able to help in whatever way we can.’’
