Donation plea to help group do sew much more

Evesham Editorial 30th Apr, 2020   0

AN ARMY of volunteers who are sewing scrubs for Worcestershire’s hospitals and other care venues have issued a rallying call for help.

At the start of the coronavirus pandemic Ashleigh Lindsell, an NHS worker from Lincoln, formed ‘For the Love of Scrubs’ to encourage people to help make the scrubs from their homes in order to fill a gap in provisions for NHS staff.

Within Worcestershire a committed bunch of sewers recognised the need to form a cohesive team to service the local NHS in our area. So the Worcestershire offshoot group formed on Facebook.

The group has received approval from the NHS Trust board in the county to make scrubs to their specification and have a process in place to satisfy their infection control, using a central hub for distribution of the finished scrubs.




Katie Powis a founder member of the Worcestershire team said: “It is an absolutely amazing and humbling thing to be involved with. We are stunned every day by people’s kindness and the gratitude from the front-line medics who receive our donations.”

Sewers are now in desperate need material for scrubs and are raising money for vital supplies.
