Ailsa Bond Sewing for the NHS_cropped

The Haddenham Scrub Hub is a team of local volunteers who are sewing garments for the local NHS and Care staff. To help them continue with their sterling work producing scrub bags, scrub hats and headbands they need more material.

They have been asked to make 150 wash bags for scrubs and 50 scrub hats for The Leonard Cheshire Care Homes, various GP surgeries and Stoke Mandeville Echo Department. But they are running low on fabric to make these much needed items for our front line workers.

So do you have any cotton or polycotton fabric that you can donate?

The material can be of any colour or pattern, but must be strong and not thread bare, as the items will have withstand many many washes at 60 degrees. Unwanted sheets, duvet covers or pillow cases are all candidates for recycling for the NHS.

If you can help please contact Gemma Buckland via Email: gemmabuckland@icloud.com
