Pulsar Instruments donates 240 handheld thermometers to all schools in a Yorkshire based multi-academy trust


Ebor Academy Trust runs 24 schools on the Yorkshire Coast, in the East Riding and Hull and in Selby and York. They gratefully received the high-tech devices from Pulsar Instruments Plc, of the Evron Centre in John Street, Filey.

“As a company, Pulsar Instruments seeks to make a difference to people’s lives around the world by providing high-quality health and safety instrumentation and by supporting local communities where we can,” said Simon Rehill, general manager of Pulsar Instruments.

“In line with this, and given that Covid-19 cases continue to place a burden on the education system, we are delighted to donate some 240 non-contact handheld thermometers to schools within Ebor Academy Trust to help them maintain a safe environment for the children that attend and the staff that work there.”

A presentation was made by Mr Rehill to Yasmine Gharib, head girl, and James Brown-Sill, deputy head boy, at Ebor Academy Filey on Muston Road. The students took ownership of the devices on behalf of the trust.

Ebor’s chief executive, Gail Brown, said: “We are delighted to accept these devices, which will give greater reassurance to everyone in our school communities. Despite the huge disruption and anguish, Covid has caused, it has also brought out the best in people in terms of support for our schools from companies such as Pulsar Instruments. A heartfelt thank you to them.”
