The Warriner School in Bloxham near Banbury has donated 360 safety science goggles to the NHS.

The donation was made in response to a request and collection effort coordinated by Oxfordshire County Council.

Dr. Annabel Kay​, the executive headteacher of The Warriner School, said: "I was really pleased that we were able to respond within a few hours of receiving the request thanks to Adrian Turner, the head of science, being able to go straight into school and sort the equipment ready for collection.

"We are planning to donate more goggles and any gloves that we have too. I was really pleased that we were able to help in this small way."

Another school, Tudor Hall, an independent girls school in Wykham Park, Banbury, also donated safety science goggles to the NHS last week.

Tudor Hall School donated their safety science goggles to a local GP doctor's surgery in town called Woodlands Surgery in Burchester Place.
