Scrubs for Cambridgeshire made locally

We reported last Wednesday (15/4) that an appeal had been launched for more volunteers to help make scrubs for NHS Staff at Hinchingbrooke Hospital.  A Facebook group called ‘Hinchingbrooke and Peterborough For the Love of Scrubs’ had been set up

Frontline staff at Hinchingbrooke received their first delivery of scrubs from the group earlier this month.  Maxine, the page founder, said “We are expecting to now make at least 250 sets of scrubs in the next couple of weeks.

Another group also producing scrubs for Cambridgeshire hospitals made a facebook appeal for material yesterday (20/4) on “Godmanchester Living”. Helen Goode Davis said in her post:  “Hi Godmanchester! I wonder if Scrubs for Cambridgeshire / Helping the NHS can ask for your help? We are in need of Sheets, Duvet Covers, Pillowcases, so we can make scrubs, hats and scrub bags for our wonderful NHS. We can accept them as long as they are not stained, we can take any colour you have…. We can collect or you can drop them off in Godmanchester. Anything you can donate is gratefully received! Many thanks!  For more details check out the Godmanchester Living facebook page.
