A hard working Freemason in Norwich is up for the Lockdown DIY Project Award
Colin Breckons a Freemason from Norwich has been picked as a finalist in the Telegraph Lockdown Awards in the DIY Project section.
The Awards are covering a range of different areas from "Best Neighbour", "Community Hero", "Best New Business" to "Lockdown DIY Project" which is where our Brother comes into the fold.
Colin Breckons had a 3D printer as a recreational practice and was making pieces for him and the family but when it came to the lockdown he decided to put his time and equipment into making Face Shields for the Hospitals, Paramedics and the Police Service.
Colin began his project to help the services with the Face Shields and was completely self funded, however, when he could no longer afford to self finance the Freemasons of Norwich donated £4,500. Another local group gave him some office space so he didn't have to take over his house and locals were then offering their time to help him and more offering the use of their 3D printers.
A local company even got in touch to help recycle the left over plastic from the creating process to try and make it as clean an operation as possible. Colin who was once able to make 600 face shields a week was able to boost this to 1,000 per day!
