This scheme will cease to be operational from the 1st June although help can still be given if required. A big thank you to all those who volunteered their time to help others during the lockdown. If help is required, please contact Tonbridge and Malling Community Hub on 01732 876152 or Kent Together on 03000419292.
As the rate of new COVID-19 infections is slowing, the Hadlow group who were sewing protective scrubs for NHS workers is no longer active. A huge thank you to everyone who has contributed to this amazing effort.
A group of people in Hadlow are sewing scrubs – gowns and hats – for use in Maidstone and Pembury Hospitals. This is being co-ordinated by a Facebook Group in Maidstone. Patterns are available on their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/549227039361894/permalink/552490582368873/ If you would like to be involved you can join the group or, alternatively, email Janice at email@example.com for more information. If you do not have access to a sewing machine, you can still help by donating any unwanted or old duvet covers or sheets to be made up into scrubs. You can also sew, knit or crochet hearts: these should be in matching pairs to be given to people suffering with COVID-19 and to their loved ones. Hearts need to be small enough to fit inside an A5 envelope.
