From listening to a news story saying that our local children’s hospitals were short of visors to fight against Covid19, to a phone call asking my amazing friend Greg at Blue Parrot Events to help me to source and make visors, I am now so proud to say that we have distributed over 2000 visors and 3000 masks to our Frontline Heroes.
We were inundated with requests but we managed to get a supply to all the areas that asked for help. From hospitals, Covid units, hospices, cancer care, other charities, pharmacies, GP surgeries, Care homes, Ambulance Staff to Community nurses, we have tried to help protect as many as of our real life superheroes as possible.
I know I speak for everyone who has received this PPE when I say thank you for your donations to make this possible.
The feedback from them has been so humbling. Thanks to YOUR donations, these are just some of the places that we have managed to provide Visors/masks to……

Thanks to Renfrewshire Envitonment & Infeastructure (Building Services) and Environment & Communities for their donation of Easter Eggs.
The biggest thank you goes to Greg at Blue Parrot for making this all possible. Without Greg we could never have sourced the materials or made the visors. Massive thank you to the boys at Blue Parrot who gave up their time to volunteer to make the visors with Greg. I am really going to miss working with you guys, it has been an absolute pleasure. I really hope people remember Greg and his events company when this is all over, he is by far the best in the events and wedding business and I just hope the people he is supporting now will support his business in the future. https://blueparroteventsgroup.co.uk/
There is no doubt this is a financially worrying time for all business and charities, our futures are uncertain but both Brightest Star and Blue Parrot were certain that we had to do something to help those at the frontline fighting Covid19. Each one of you who donated or fundraised has helped to make a frontline worker feel more safe at their work, you cant put any value on that.
We will get through this together xxx
