WHAT OUR FAIRIES DID DURING LOCKDOWN 2020
During Lockdown we have been working with a Federation of Hampshire GP Practices along the A3 corridor from Bordon to Haying Island and along to Fareham ad Gosport, to provide washable clinical gowns for their specialist respiratory hubs dealing with the COVID 19 virus.
We have an army of pattern cutting fairies, sewing fairies, and distributor fairies
We have raised over £8k and have purchased fabrics and elastic to make over 2500 clinical gowns, and have donated 600m of cotton fabric to local groups making scrubs for the NHS and Care worker teams.
We are now making 4000 cotton facemarks for patients to have for their doctor consultations.
THANK YOU to all who have donated or volunteered – you’re amazing!
