Forest Gate Community School has donated goggles used in science classes to St John Ambulance to help paramedics on the front line of coronavirus stay safe.
Staff at the Forest Lane school handed over around 100 pars of new eye protectors after learning about a shortage.
School science technician Julie Burman’s husband Keith, a member of St John Ambulance, made the request after learning supply chains had been affected by an increased demand during the Covid-19 pandemic.
