This is a request from Jane Huskisson who writes:
‘My sister works at Warwick hospital. She is helping gather materials to make PPE. If you have buttons (2-2.5cm), thin elastic and/or thin cotton fabric (cotton sheets are fine) to spare, I will happily take them and get them to my sister.’
Elastic needs to be 1.5-2.5cm wide, cotton fabric to be in light colours for gowns.
In order to contact Jane please call or text 07984 685127.
For information on how to make scrubs for NHS workers see PPE Info.
Warwickshire Scrubbers is a Facebook Group for sewers and their helpers in Warwickshire creating mainly scrubs, bags and caps for local hospitals.
Also see UK Crafters – Oxfordshire and Central Hub which was set up in response to the Australian bush fires. Now all attention is focused on the NHS and mainly making laundry bags etc. for Oxford University Trust Hospitals, including the Horton and JR.
