Worcestershire - For the Love of Scrubs

47283312_1587111129199881_r.jpegAs we are all too well aware our NHS and care staff are all doing an amazing job on the front line. Due to the re-deployment of staff and staff coming back into the service to help there is a shortage not just of protective equipment but of Scrubs.  These are the clothes worn under protective equipment and around wards that can be easily changed/washed and ready to wear again. Some staff are spending shifts wearing paper scrubs which are not comfortable and /or struggling to be able to change them as they should be.

Worcestershire "For the Love of Scrubs" group is aiming to make scrubs from our homes using an army of home dressmakers, professional seamstresses and anyone with sewing skills. We have formal approval from Worcester Acute Trust and Worcester Health trust to make scrubs for staff at their 9 hospitals. We have hospitals and wards feeding through their requirements to us with numbers being requested already exceeding 500 and more requests are coming in as we write this. We have a lot of work to do!  

Purchasing suitable fabric is an issue but more importantly does not come cheap. A set of typical scrubs made with fabric purchased by our team is costing from £15 to £35 per set. Whilst many have bought fabric from their own pockets we need help. Anything you give will help us make more scrubs.

Rest assured should we raise more funds than are needed any balance will be paid over to the Nation Emergencies Trust Coronavirus Appeal.  However, right now we just need funds and fabric to really make a difference.

Please give what you can..... THANK YOU
