The Cotswold Printing Co Ltd has been supported by the Cotswolds LEADER Programme towards a large format printer, cutter and laminator to facilitate the growth of the business. It is part funded by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development.
During the first waves of Covid 19, when PPE shortages were causing NHS staff to work in unnecessarily dangerous conditions, we stepped up and offered our services to Gloucestershire NHS to make face visors and cut sets of surgical scrubs on our Zund G3 large format cutting system.
Materials were sourced from Antalis and Canon, Visor designs were approved by the both Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and Gloucestershire Health and Care NHS Foundation Trust, then with the support of an army of volunteers from GL11 Community Hub and SnowBusiness we set about making over 30,000 visors, 10,000 sets of scrubs and delivering them to the Hospital stores for distribution.
We are incredibly proud of the contribution we were able to make, however our efforts are insignificant compared with the Frontline NHS staff who risked their lives to help save members of our community. We pay our respects to all the frontline staff who lost their lives in Covid19, they will not be forgotten.
The Cotswold Printing Co were nominated for the SoGlos Business Award for Corporate Responsibility for their work supporting Gloucestershire NHS during Covid-19 making 30,000+ face visors and cutting 10,000+ sets of surgical scrubs helping to keep frontline healthcare staff safer during the first waves of Covid.
Adam, our MD, said “We’re not the sort to shout about these things and we don’t feel very corporate, social or responsible most of the time but we were flattered by the nomination. There is some stiff competition in this class and some efforts far worthier than ours, however, we are looking forward to the awards evening in September and wish all the finalists the very best of luck!
