(By Jill Dando News)

Big hearted school staff have delivered hundreds of pairs of science goggles to a hospital to use during the coronavirus crisis

Science teacher Baylea Charles from The King Alfred School Academy in Highbridge is pictured collecting the goggles before taking them to Musgrove Park Hospital in Taunton.

The general hospital desperately needs items and equipment such as goggles to help prepare for a surge in patients.

The school uses them for science lessons, but they will now be used for dealing with patients.

Principal Nathan Jenkins said: “We are a passionate community school and our students and staff regularly show their caring and kindness to respond to the needs of others. We want to help the NHS during these extremely difficult times”
