An MSP has praised a Moray charity for producing face masks for local healthcare workers.
Highlands and Islands MSP Jamie Halcro Johnston has submitted a Scottish Parliament motion recognising the efforts of Moray Firth Makerspace after the charity, which aims to help public understanding of STEM, started using its 3D printers to manufacture much-needed protective visors for local health centres.
Jamie Halcro Johnston said “It is inspiring to see so many individuals and organisations, across the Highlands and Islands, respond to the coronavirus crisis with imagination, ingenuity and community spirit.
“Moray Firth Makerspace, who have turned their hands to making hundreds of visors, are to be congratulated on all their efforts. And I am sure those efforts are much appreciated by the local health centres in Forres, Elgin and Lossiemouth which have been receiving them.
“It is so encouraging to see a local charity, supported by local people, making a difference to protect those who are working so hard to protect us all”.
