Pillowcases for Scrub Bags
1st May 2020
Supporting our NHS...
Thank you for starting to donate your old pillow cases (and special messages) to make NHS Scrub Bags. Your continued support is greatly appreciated!
Your pillowcases are being transformed. They are cut, sewn (with your special message inside) and ironed. Ours will be heading off to Shotley Bridge Hospital.
The first batch have already been collected - they are collected every Thursday (can you spot yours?)
This nurse is receiving Scrub Bags made by the sewing group. You can see she is smiling, even through her face mask. The staff at this setting were very appreciative of the delivery.
Any spare fabric that is left over, is being made into matching hearts. When a patient is admitted to hospital, they are given on heart and the other is given to the family. It is yet another way of helping families to feel connected in the hardest of times.
So, keep those donations coming and we'll keep uploading your pictures to share with the wider community.
