A fantastic group of volunteers working towards getting PPE to those who need it.

New stretch target

If support is large enough, I will spread my resources with other similar groups to allow any required PPE to be produced.

Any moneys donated through this page will go directly towards distributing fabric to stitchers to get mask requests met prioritising frontline workers first.

Mask Force - Weston was started as a means to get face masks to those key workers and vulnerable people who want to help reduce the spread of Covid19.

Started through my business sewing page Lpstitches, I started making masks, scrub bags and ear savers for those in need as well as the public in return for donations. These helped me source the materials needed to continue.

Skip forward 4 weeks we now have over 30 volunteers helping to cut and sew items needed. I am distributing materials where I can and have a fantastic group of people giving up their time to meet requests from residential homes, groups of volunteers and medical groups. 

Research is still debatable as to the use of masks but I have come to the conclusion that when used properly, masks can help reduce the spread of Covid19.

Ear savers also reduce the friction on the back of ears (mostly requested by carers/nurses)

Let's make 'Mask Force - Weston' happen
