This week we wanted to let you know about Frankie-Mae in year 9. Frankie-Mae’s Mum works at the hospital.
During lockdown she wanted to do something to help her Mum and the other staff. Using YouTube videos Frankie-Mae taught herself to knit and crochet and she’s been making ear bands for hospital staff, including her Mum to wear.
These bands allow people wearing masks to have them supported at the back of the head rather than on their ears. Wearing masks all day that are on your ears can make their skin really sore and uncomfortable. The Leigh UTC would like to thank Frankie-Mae for making these and helping other people. We are all really proud of you! #Thankyou #UTC #STEM #HomeLearning
