We need face masks!
Do you have a sewing machine at home, that you could use to sew masks?
We are looking for people who can make simple, fabric face masks.
These masks will be used by our volunteers working in the fantastic Skyline Food Hub, and any additional masks will be distributed to individuals in need of masks.
The benefit of these masks is that they are not taking precious PPE from NHS and care workers. Although they do not offer the same levels of protection as surgical masks, they do help contain the spread of the virus.
We can provide elastic for the ties, and we are working on getting fabric to distribute too.
Please download our free PDF mask sewing pattern to begin making masks.
If you would like to get some supplies from us, get in touch with us and we can provide you with free elastic.
Once you have made your masks, drop us a line and we will let you know how to either deliver the masks, or if you are in the Woodberry Down area we can come and collect them from you (observing social distancing guidelines).
Please get in touch with Miriam at Miriam.email@example.com if you have any questions.
