Hurworth School and Bishop Hogarth Catholic Education Trust (formerly Carmel Education Trust) in Darlington have come together to coordinate donations of goggles and disposable gloves to their local hospitals, helping to supply much needed resources for the NHS.
Following the suggestion from Hurworth’s laboratory technician Sue Dell, the school came together with Bishop Hogarth Catholic Education Trust to coordinate the pick up of the gloves and goggles which then were sent to the hospital. Maura Regan, CEO of Bishop Hogarth Catholic Education Trust rightly believes that ‘every little helps’ and is now encouraging the Trust’s Stockton schools to also take part and help North Tees hospital with Martin Gray from Stockton’s Local Authority urging other secondary schools in the area to also offer support.
Carmel College principal Mike Shorten added: “We are so pleased to be able to help the NHS with a donation of 165 pairs of goggles and more than 2,500 disposable gloves from our science and technology department and I would like to thank Hurworth Academy for having the idea and bringing all the schools together in this fabulous initiative.”
A huge congratulations to Hurworth School and Bishop Hogarth Catholic Education Trust for their hard work to help front line workers.
