With the help of the local community, Made in Ashford have been
doing some incredible fundraising to support the William Harvey Hospital and
the local health trust in Ashford and surrounding areas.
The group have raised over £8000 to spend on fabric and supplies needed to make hospital scrubs, masks, hats and washbags. The funding means that anyone wishing to contribute to the task force can do so, regardless of their financial situation.
The team has delivered over 5000 meters of fabric to 279 sewers so far; that’s enough to sew 1263 sets of scrubs! More and more people are getting involved every day, volunteering as sewers, cutters, packers, delivery drivers, collection drivers and coordinators.
