The Haddenham Scrub Hub started six days ago and now has 28 members all sewing items for our front line workers.

Initially we started by producing scrub wash bags which NHS staff use to put dirty scrubs in to wash them. These pillow case size bags with draw strings have to be robust and able to be used multiple times to wash scrubs at 60 degrees.

In those six days members of the Haddenham Scrub Hub have made and delivered 152 wash bags to our front line NHS workers.

Now the call has come out from local Care Homes asking for scrubs, scrub caps and head bands as well as the wash bags. So our Stitchers our now turning their remarkable skills and tenacity to making those.

It has been amazing how the group has formed so quickly, pulled together, using old sheets and duvets, and then spent hours sitting at their sewing machines turning out these wash bags.

We must thank Alison Green who initiated this group and through the Fish Scheme is funding the raw materials needed.
