The Haddenham Scrub Hub now consisting of 28 Stitchers has gone from strength to strength working many hours sewing for the NHS.

Initially the ladies started by producing wash bags for scrubs which frontline workers use to change their scrubs several times in a shift and are in great demand. To date the ladies have made and delivered over 200 bags which have gone to Wexham Park Hospital and the John Radcliffe.

Freemantle Trust, a registered charity not for profit organisation providing a range of care homes for the elderly and disabled, are desperate for clothing and have asked for help from Haddenham Scrub Hub. Towards this need HSH are now manufacturing will be delivering 40 sets of Scrubs and 50+ Scrub Hats.

HSH are now liaising with "Sewing for the NHS Beds, Bucks and Milton Keynes" and "A Stitch in Thame" and together pooling our efforts to provide much needed items to front line workers.

From this coordinated approach is a request from our local hospitals for a large quantity Headbands and Ear Savers which NHS staff use to loop on their face masks. We expect to make in excess of 100 of these in the coming weeks.

The Haddenham Scrub Hub would not have been able to make these vitally needed items for the NHS and Care Homes without the support of The Fish Scheme. Our thanks go to Alison Green and her team who have facilitated the Scrub Hub.

Finally can we say a big THANK YOU to all the Stitchers of the Haddenham Scrub Hub who have, and continue to, work tirelessly creating these wonderful products for the NHS and Care Homes.
