Thank you very much to all involved in making, supplying and delivering our Face Shields to protect myself and my staff against this dreadful pandemic. We wish you all well. Take care and stay safe from all at JD Service and MOT Centre Ltd.

Great Work. Thank You!

The face shields provided by the University of Hull are protecting my partner and her team of Occupational Therapists as they work closely with 'at risk' patients in adult social care, including in care home settings where there is COVID-19. These shields will help to protect them as they help some of the most vulnerable people in society -- the OT team send their heart-felt thanks to the team at Hull!

keep up the good work!

We are really grateful for the Uni supplying this service. As front line workers the masks are a huge help. They were also of a much higher quality of the small quantity we had obtained elsewhere.

Thanks for all you are doing

Thank you for taking the initiative to get this project up & running. Good luck with the work, a fabulous contribution to the crisis.

Thank you for doing this.

Here's a completely off-the-wall idea, just something to throw into a brainstorming discussion: What if you were wearing a space helmet fed with air that has passed through a HEPA filter? By a space helmet, basically I mean a plastic bubble that covers the whole head and has a flange at the base that can be tucked into clothing. There would need to be an air vent to allow air to escape, and an inlet for a supply pipe from the pump. Of course, if the pump stops, this could be kind of deadly unless opened up or removed. And it is not clear to me how much battery power would be required to run a pump or fan that would supply sufficient change of air. Having used a CPAP machine in the past, I know that such a device uses mains power, because it sure won't run on AA cells!!! As a person who is in the extremely vulnerable category such that I have to shield for 12 weeks (likely more) without even going out for daily exercise, a means to go out safely would be great. Of course such a device might not be sufficient. I have glossed over the problems of covering hands, and of safely removing the equipment on return home, and the potential need to remove and wash outer clothing. I talked to a consultant during a recent hospital visit who told me that my finding, that wearing a face mask causes shortness of breath due to re-breathing one's own exhaled CO2, is common to all mask wearers. A device that supplies fresh air and does not require a mask to be in direct contact with the wearers face could be a lot more comfortable. Visibility would be no worse than for people wearing facial visors. Just an idea to stimulate a discussion. A similar device to what I am suggesting in fact already exists for use in providing oxygen to COVID-19 patients, as I have seen in videos. But my idea is for one for use by those who have not had COVID-19 yet, and would only need to be fed normal air, not an oxygen-rich mix. Hence the potential portability.

Well done

Great inititiave

Great job! BSc(Econ) 1969-1972

You are doing a fantastic job

I'm classed as elderly so am not able to volunteer in other areas but I wanted to feel I have helped in some way.

The University of Hull holds a charitable status and can claim gift aid on various projects they fundraise for.

With my good wishes for this excellent initiative.

Have donated but have question - what is the charity it is associated with for gift aid purposes?

Keep up the fantastic work guys - well done. Tracey

A worthwhile project I hope you achieve all your target and more

Well done and thank you

Congratulations - good to see the old alma mater doing its bit when it really counts!

Great work. Keep it up.

Thanks for giving us the privilege of contributing to the NHS. Any opportunity to serve our national heroes should be grabbed with open hands.

Keep up the good work. Support the NHS.

Great work!

Keep up the good work guys!

Thank you for sending the video link, we will certainly pass it on. We graduated in 1965. I was a member of H.U.S.S.O and studying History, my husband in the Chemistry dept. We both came back for the celebrations during the Year of Culture, and were very impressed with the new medical centre and everything that we saw. It's great to see Hull students following the tradition of supporting the community. Judy and Howard Chan

Pledged because we can't rely upon the scandalously incompetent government to protect front line NHS and Care staff, I would happy to fund a guillotine for messrs. Raab, Hancock, Johnson, Cummins.

Great cause in these difficult times, and very pleased to donate (1979 graduate).

Well worth supporting. It's surely the least we can do,.

Keep up the great work!

Brilliant initiative, proud of all you're doing, thank you.

Well done Hull University for this great initiative. Good luck.

Fantastic cause. Thank you everyone.

So glad to be able to contribute to this as a former Hull student and support such great work to help our medical and care workers.

Many thanks for all your great work on this project!

When I chose to scan my credit card, a completely different credit card number to mine appeared in the box. Perhaps the image was slightly out of focus but I hope random people's accounts are not likely to be deducted in error. I entered my details manually, but perhaps this scan facility needs some adjustment.

Great Idea - our daughter is a Senior Research Nurse in Intensive Care at UHW in Cardiff so we know how very important these devices are.

I wish you every success with this project and for the future. The University of Hull has a vital role in the region.

Thanks for your brilliant efforts

...very best of luck with the project!

Well done everyone great work

Keep up the good work and thank you for your hard work and commitment in keeping our NHS safe.

My best wishes are with all who are involved with this vital project. Be strong and be safe.

Good luck and thank you.

I graduated in1968. Well understand this may not be practicable but if it would be possible to have any updates on Heather Lancaster, Brian Cox, Jane White, or Alan Pound who all graduated in that year that would be great. This....in such busy and difficult times may well be far too big an ask. Respect for all you are doing. We ‘ baby boomers’ had an easy ride and have a lot to answer for! Best wishes - Jon Rake.

Respect, admiration and acknowledgement of the skill and bravery shown by all those helping others at this time. Good luck to you all and thank-you.

Thank you for what you are doing to help the NHS

Amazing work guys. You should be very proud of what you are doing. Thank you for keeping the NHS and Careworkers safe. We all appreciate it very much.

The thought of Producing Face Shields for NHS/Careworkers risking their lives and working very hard at this difficult time to save other people's lives, to me, is a good idea that must be implemented. Therefore, I am donating this money to support this worthy cause that needs to be emolated.

Well done for providing these essential shields.

Good work guys. Proud to be a University of Hull alumnus.

We should have well human being and cooperation in this moment. Only our belongingness and or togetherness by heart will only help us to make us stronger. All the best to everyone and God Bless U... Venkatachalam Govindan S.ID# 6934482
