  • A SEWING SUCCESS

    date posted: 03/07/20

     

    Since the beginning of lockdown, amateur and professional sewers across the UK have used their sewing skills to make hospital uniforms, known as scrubs, for health workers fighting the coronavirus. Thousands of volunteers across the UK got behind their sewing machines to make scrubs for these amazing frontline workers.

    Mrs Green volunteered to support this invaluable initiative, this is her story:

    "I became part of the lovely group ‘Sew Sussex’, an off shoot from the original group ‘For the Love of Scrubs’. Being part of a ‘community’ practical project gave me a real sense of purpose and camaraderie.

    As I was making the scrubs, I wondered who would be wearing them and what they would be experiencing on a daily basis. What I hadn’t anticipated was how many NHS workers and their families would thank me and share photos of themselves wearing items I had made. This gave me a real boost to know that I had made a difference to their lives.

    After 40 sets of scrubs, 50 scrub hats and 100 masks I have ‘hung up’ my needle and thread to focus on teaching these skills to the next generation again. I am ever so grateful to have been part of this journey and I do wish all them all well.

    Stay safe.

    Mrs Green"

     

  • ST JOHN AMBULANCE CADET

    date posted: 03/07/20

    During the COVID-19 crisis many St John Ambulance volunteers have shaved their beards to make sure the protective masks they wear fit correctly, so that they can look after patients safely and support the NHS during these challenging times. One of our students is a dedicated and enthusiastic St John Ambulance Cadet and decided to shave her head to stand in solidarity with her SJA colleagues.  This was a massive undertaking and her fundraising efforts have really paid off as she has raised just over £800 for SJA! An awesome achievement, well done, we are all so proud of you and the amazing SJA! #ShaveForStJohn
