An award winning Sheffield College lecturer is applying his engineering skills to manufacturing vital protective equipment for the NHS.

Nick Hart is using the College’s 3D printers to create face shield frames for frontline staff at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. So far, he has created 25 frames, which he is due to deliver this week.

Nick, who is a Learning and Development Coach for Engineering and Construction, said: “One of my close family works for the NHS. I wanted to do my bit to help the amazing frontline workers in our city. I love engineering. It’s my happy place – solving problems.”

Angela Foulkes, chief executive and principal, The Sheffield College, said: “It’s great to see our staff supporting the NHS at this critical time from making personal protective equipment as well as teddy bears for children in hospital to delivering urgent medical supplies by motorbike and running or walking 5K to fundraise.”
