Scrubs - aid for materials & postage

Dear Friends ,

Along with several thousand other costume makers, seamstresses, designers, embroiderers and craft lovers across the UK, I find myself sewing scrubs for NHS centres and hospitals. Together we are volunteering our time and skill to help in the way we best can.

Many have fronted the costs of buying fabric and materials to make the scrubs, and we are also paying for postage to send materials to each other and to post the scrubs to hospitals.

Others are willing to get going, but haven’t the funds to get materials and to post. My fabulous friends previously sponsored me and their generosity has allowed me to supply some fabric packs to eager sewers. But with a growing network and demand we are in need of your support.

Organisers of  “For The Love Of Scrubs - Our NHS Needs You”, who are linking seamstresses to hospitals and providing a platform to access information and resources, have raised funds to offer a number of kits to individuals, but very rapidly we are seeing the demand go up.

Help me make scrubs and get these delivered to the doctors and nurses who need them.  Help me raise money to buy fabric and materials that I can donate to fellow scrub makers across our networks.

My day job is making fabulous, sparkly costumes for Pantomime, my workroom now is a fabulous shade of royal blue. Like so many of you I have many dear friends working hard to keep us safe.  And now a huge community coming together to support them.

Keep our creative community thriving. And help us help our NHS.

Thanking you all for your support xxx

With love,
