A teenager from Mullion is spending her Covid-19 isolation helping to save lives from her kitchen table.

Aged just 13, Paige Barnett has set up her own production line making washable face masks from scratch, which she is donating to NHS staff and healthcare workers in the Helston and Lizard area.

So far the Mullion School student has already made 66 masks, which have been donated to Mullion & Constantine Health Centre, Poldhu Care Home and Helston Medical Centre.

She has now created a YouTube video to share her skills with anyone else who would like to give it a go and help out.

Describing his pride for his "amazing daughter," dad Scott said: "She is an amazing young lady."

It was Scott that helped inspire Paige to start doing her bit to help protect those on the frontline, as it is in fact a whole family effort.

Scott, a warrant officer at RNAS Culdrose, is part of a private group working with three other 3D printers, Gary Adlington from Falmouth, Chris Parker from St Austell (3dphydrographics) and Ryan Curnow from Pool (with his wife Suzanne coordinating all orders) that have so far produced and delivered more than 1,200 3D-printed face shields.

He recently set up and established a Royal Navy 3D Innovation Hub at Culdrose, which has been printing for around ten to 12 months - and now suddenly finds itself working 24 hours a day, seven days a week creating essential PPE.

The shields are being hospitals, carers, community carers, chemists, transport workers, those in essential retail, GP surgeries and any other key workers who ask.

The group has a small donation page on Facebook, under Keyworks Covid 19 Protection to help cover the cost of the materials, so that the face shields can be delivered for free.
