What happens when a small group of novice and professional seamstresses team up to sew gowns, masks, and laundry/scrub bags for health care personnel? They turn out over 1000 pieces of essential PPE in just one month. Volunteers have also pitched in to assemble face shields, which first began their manufacture at East Lomond School.
Now they need your help with donations of viable poly-cotton or cotton fabrics, your nimble fingers if you prefer to sew, or simply a monetary donation to help with the purchase of necessary items to keep this team on a roll! You can drop off fabric to Scotland’s Cove Country Store at 1 Clifton Place along Shore Road in Cove on the Rosneath Peninsula. Cheryl, Chrissy or Corine will be happy to see you!
If you’re a health care professional and would like to request some of these handy PPE items for your team, you can message Carol Anne Calder or Jake Pazio via FaceBook Messenger. To make a donation on GoFundMe, go to: https://uk.gofundme.com/f/sew-grateful
The group has been actively providing PPE to medical providers and care homes throughout Scotland, where the shortages are proving most needed at this point. They already have a backlog of orders as well.
