Hi folks,

Well its been a while since I've posted, April in fact but it's been manic since we got back from lockdown in May with work.
Its been great getting back into what we do best, install film to Windows but we just wanted to touch base and say a few thank you's.

We recently found out that Melissa and myself had been nominated for an award in recognition for the work we did whilst in lockdown, making visors for the NHS.
We are truly humbled by the fact that we had been nominated by a number of people for this award and for that we are extremely grateful. We didn't do it for the glory but just to do out bit and try to protect our amazing NHS doctors and nurses through this pandemic.
It wasn't just us, we were just a small cog in a big wheel and if it hadn't been for the many companies, suppliers, manufacturers, small businesses and support from our friends and family we couldn't have done it. Not forgetting the amazing help we had from the crews at Leicester Eastern fire brigade who did an amazing job, a massive thank you must go to all of them for their hard work.

So thank you again, the Leicestershire Live heroes award ceremony takes place this Tuesday 8th September at 7pm and you can watch us live by going onto the website www.leicestermercury.co.uk and follow the link.

We don't class ourselves as heroes, just a couple of people wanting to help make a difference.

We are proud to announce that this evening we won the leicestershire health care heroes award for 2020. A massive thank you to all those that helped and supported us through lockdown to produce these for our amazing NHS heroes.

How nice to have been part of this great 'team'. Love you Darren - Davina

Well done it was amazing. I helped get the visors out to care homes and some hospital wards via the guys at Eastern. Was so good to be part of something so amazing❀️

Hi everyone,

Darren here; I just wanted to touch base with you all to let you know whats been happening over the last couple of weeks.

If you are a customer requesting a quote from us, I'm terribly sorry for the delay but as you can see in our earlier posts, we have been preoccupied recently. A simple idea to make medical visors to protect our NHS due to the PPE shortage whilst on lockdown resulted in us having requests for over 40,000 visors from all over the country. From the stories we heard and the need to help our heroes urgently, we put our business to one side and went full steam ahead to help our NHS. Things have quietened down slightly and so we are working on your quotes and you should receive it shortly.

For those of you who requested visors from us, hopefully we have been able to assist you and if we haven't we are still working on it and trying our best. Over those 40,000 visor requests, we have managed to allocate over 30,000 to those that needed them through an amazing team of window film companies throughout the UK who have come to our rescue, heard our plight and started making them for our amazing Doctors and Nurses. This has been an amazing journey and we haven't finished, still working to assist as many if not all that contacted us.

So thank you for your patience, we are trying our best, exhausted from 18 hour days everyday to meet demand and help as many as we can.

Thank you, we will be in touch shortly.

Kind Regards

All at Smashgard.

Hi everyone, we have been busy 😊 myself and Melissa Botterill have arranged for these visors to go to various places over the next few days. 10 visors to 5 paramedic crews in nottingham, 30 visors to front line covid ward in leicester (they are sharing 1 visor between 4 of them at present) 😲 5 visors to a local care home, 20 visors to midwives, 10 for Chesterfield hospital being collected today the list goes on. We will carry on over the weekend making them ready for tuesday when we will be donating 120 visors amongst hospitals, a children's hospital, 2 doctors surgeries and nurses in northampton. πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘Š #makethevisor

We now have dealers in various parts of the country so therefore if you havent heard from us, we apologise but we are trying to help as many of you as possible who kindly messaged us requesting visors.
If you need our help, some visors, just remember and use the name #makethevisor 😊

This all came as a bit of a shock to us, 2 weeks ago we were a normal window film company, now we have a website, a group of amazing window film companies helping us to help you, making as many visors as we can, we are trying our very best to help our amazing NHS heroes.

So thank you and remember, we haven't forgot about you, we will do our best
