YouTuber Morgz, also known as Morgan Hudson, has today launched his latest charity initiative - Ultimate TeamMorgz Worldwide face masks - with all profits going straight to NHS charities in the fight against Covid-19.

All profits from the limited edition face masks will be split 50/50 across a nationwide NHS charity (NHS Charities Together) and a charity in Morgz’s home city of Sheffield (Sheffield Hospitals Charity) to provide the much needed support to the nation's hard-working NHS.

The face masks have been designed to be bigger than standard face masks for better coverage, additionally, the masks are non medical grade products. The face masks are printed, hand-cut and sewn in East Sussex with each mask made to order by a small team of dedicated individuals.
