Explorer Scout helps our NHS and local Key Workers

Date: 7th Apr 2020 Author: Ian Bench

One of our Explorer Scouts, has gone the extra mile to help the NHS.

Dan Hunter, member of Sefton North Scouts, has been creating visors for local key workers.

Explorer Scout Dan, came up with the idea of using his school’s facilities, starting a production line with the help of one of his teachers.

“I’m looking to start an engineering apprenticeship in September, and I love the engineering work we do in school. I saw the article online from the person who came up with the design and contacted my headteacher about me coming into school to use the equipment and make the visors.” Dan said.

Formby High Schools DT twitter page said “Great ideal realised” and thanked “Mr Rigby’s for all of his technical skills and help”. With one comment saying “Brilliant stuff! Well done Dan”


Dan also added he wanted any key workers in the area to “drop me a message and we can organise getting them (Visors) to them free of charge”. Please use the contact page to contact Dan.

Well done Dan, for using your skills and initiative to help our community.
