Swansea steps up to PPE challenge
Gower Assembly Member, Rebecca Evans AM, has expressed her gratitude to a Clydach firm and Swansea seamstress who are using their skills to making vital supplies for the NHS in Wales.
Red Dragon Flagmakers, which specialises in the production of flags for films, TV, festivals, and castles will now be making Personal Protective Equipment for use in Wales, joining Swansea seamstress Tesni Owen and others across Wales in responding to the call from the First Minister for help.
Rebecca Evans AM said: “It is wonderful to see businesses in Swansea stepping up to help meet the challenge of providing PPE for frontline workers in Wales. It is a fantastic demonstration of how the people of Wales are using their crafts and skills in a new way to help the NHS in Wales through this crisis.”
As a result of the work by Red Dragon Flagmakers, Tesni Owen, and others across the country, Wales is currently self-sufficient in manufacturing scrubs in Wales for the first time.
