The school’s science department gathered the available aprons, goggles and gloves, and has given them to the North West Boroughs Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust, where one student’s parent works.

The donation will help support the NHS staff in Greater Manchester, Halton, Knowsley, Sefton, St Helens, Warrington and Wigan.

Ian Young, principal of Rainford High said: “We are so grateful for the all the hard work of NHS staff during the pandemic. Currently our PPE supplies are not required and so we are delighted to help those on the frontline who are saving lives.”
