    Weʼve raised £2,535 to To fund making Scrubs for NHS staff

    Blackheath, London
    Funded on Saturday, 30th May 2020

    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.

    Story

    I have set up a sewing group with my lovely students Lynn Barrow, Annie Conway & Helen Doris, to sew much needed scrubs for the NHS staff at Lewisham & Greenwich hospitals & COVID-19 testing clinics. Up to now we have funded the project ourselves....now we need your help please!

    Funds raised will be used to cover material costs so we can make more scrubs and help more amazing doctors and NHS workers. Any left over funds at the end of the scrubs shortage we will donate to NHS Practitioner health, an organisation dedicated to supporting the unique needs of health care professionals and their mental health, which we think will be of great importance in the coming months.

      Huge thanks to everyone who generously supported our scrubs project to make for the amazing NHS staff in our local area. We cut out 731 metres of fabric & sewed 247 sets of scrubs & 130 scrub hats which have been donated to Lewisham, Queen Elizabeth & Darent Valley Hospitals, Covid testing clinics & Princess Alice Hospice. It has been a positive experience for us all in these challenging times that we have been able to put our skills to good use. With huge thanks to the amazing NHS staff.
