Haddm Scrub Hub 01

After three months of intensive sewing for the NHS and front line workers, contributors to the Haddenham Scrub Hub have put away their sewing machines and cleared their dining room tables.

During the pandemic the Scrub Hub members have made over 1,000 items including scrubs, numerous wash bags, scrub hats, ear savers, head bands and face masks.

Examples include 80 face masks and 22 sets of scrubs as well as ear savers, wash bags and headbands to the Haddenham Medical Centre. The Scrub Hub has also supplied items to Stoke Mandeville Hospital, the Police, Prison Officers, Care Homes and other local surgeries.

Our thanks go to Alison Green, whose initiative it was to start the Haddenham Scrub Hub, and to the Fish Scheme for funding the ten's of metres of elastic, waistband cord and fabric. Also to Rectory homes for printing patterns and to Ercol for cutting out fabric.

The Hub has been a wonderful example of people answering a call for help, coming together, supporting each other and giving up their time in aid of a great cause. We wanted to acknowledge all the members of the Hub so have listed their names and put together a collage of the seamstresses and some of their work.
