The global COVID-19 pandemic has created a very uncertain landscape for all, especially the NHS staff, our key front line workers. Together we can help them. 

With Nightingale now open in the city centre and numerous staff being recruited to assist in this facility, as well as support the other hospitals within Manchester Foundation Trust, there are a growing number of health workers who require appropriate protection to enable them to carry out their jobs safely against COVID-19.

We are currently making:

  • Scrubs
  • Surgical gowns
  • Scrub bags
  • Scrub caps
  • Adapters for face masks

We aim to help hospitals and local GP's within central and northern Manchester. These hospitals are:

  • Manchester Royal Infirmary
  • Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital 
  • St Mary’s Hospital
  • North Manchester General Hospital
  • Nightingale Hospital

Not to mention the many local GP’s in this area!

All front line workers are desperate for PPE and enquires for scrubs, gowns, bags, hats etc keep on coming, but unfortunately without funding to buy materials in bulk to fulfil these requests, we are unable to provide the support necessary for those that require it the most! Those that are working to save lives and risking their own lives for us!

If you would like to donate to this cause, to enable the many volunteers who are willing to sew for the NHS, then please do so and share this with your family, friends and colleagues. Every little counts!

If you can donate any of the following, that would also be greatly appreciated:

  • cotton tape
  • elastic for gowns
  • duvets to make into scrub bags
  • spare polycotton fabric

The health and safety of our healthcare workers is paramount and we have willing volunteers who want to help this cause. 

As a team we would like to continue supplying PPE for as long as we can, so your assistance with funds will enable us to do so, as anything raised will be used to buy suitable materials so that we can assist those that require it the most.

Thank you so much to anyone who donates and for sharing this crowdfunder.

Stay home. Stay safe. Help the NHS.
