A 12-year-old boy in Northamptonshire has been helped by local police to deliver homemade PPE to his grandmother who lives in a care home in Wiltshire.
Cameron Douglas made the personal protective equipment on his 3D printer, bought with his own pocket money.
During a police Facebook Q+A, the 12-year-old asked if his family could deliver it to his grandmother, but because of lockdown guidelines he was told that it wouldn’t be possible.
So the Northamptonshire and Wiltshire police forces worked together to take the PPE to Cameron’s grandmother in Swindon instead.
“I’m really pleased that we were able to work with our friends in Wiltshire to make it happen and it was so worth it to see how happy this 12-year-old boy was as a result”, said Superintendent Elliot Foskett from Northamptonshire Police.
“Cameron’s act of spending all of his pocket money on a 3D printer so he could make PPE for his grandmother demonstrates what a selfless, kind young man he is, and I can tell he has a bright future ahead of him.”
