It’s doubtful that Burtonwood Sewing Group will encounter anything like it again. We reluctantly joined in to make scrub gear. The response we had was phenomenal. In a matter of no time our funders (Steve Morgan Foundation, Cheshire Community Foundation, Warrington Rotary plus private individuals) provided the money for us to equip an army of members, partners, relatives, friends of friends and strangers (now friends) to create 100’s of pieces of PPE items for hospitals, care homes, one hospice and a GP practice (plus members’ relatives, neighbours and friends).
We were working blind as there was no coordination or guidelines. All that coupled with isolation.
But we managed it!
Well done and thank you to everyone. It really brought out the best in people and it’s been a real refresher for Burtonwood Sewing Group.
