    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    We are raising money to buy material to make Scrubs for the NHS.

    A HUGE thank you to Joshitex UK for sourcing enough material and providing it at near cost price. From the start of the process to the end everyone is being wonderful. Thank you to everyone for their efforts.

    Wed 22/4 - Delivered the first 54 scrubs to St Peters, they were very appreciative for everyone hard work. It has taken some time to get up to speed and source all the material but we should have enough material and with over 400 people in the group and some wonderful teamwork things are picking up nicely.

    Fri 24/4 - Another 50 scubs to St Peters. Since then we already have nearly another 50 to go. A WI group has also offered to help our army, a great big thanks to Kall Kwik for printing off some A0 patterns for us free of charge.

    Wed 29/4 - Another 50 scubs to St Peters but we have a backlog also just awaiting washing and ironing. St Peters have asked for these size deliveries. The process runs smoothly and everyone is super helpful.

    Fri 1/5 - 50 scrubs delivered

    Wed 6/5 - 50 Scrubs delivered

    Thu 7/5 - 50 scrubs delivered

    Mon 11/5 50 scrubs delivered - so far 400 scrubs done, well done everyone, nearly half way there.
