Scarborough Scrubs Makers Appeal For Materials And Thread

Scarborough Scrubs Makers Appeal For Materials And Thread

Published by Karen Liu at 12:27pm 29th April 2020.

There is an appeal for a donation of materials to make scrubs for health and care workers in Scarborough.

It comes from a newly-established group called 'Scarborough Scrubs Makers'.

Tim Kirkup, who is involved, said:

"We could do with material like good, strong sheeting, towels and thinner curtains would be ideal.

Nothing transparent or see-through, and then thread of all kinds, it doesn't really matter what colour.

The group has been going for about three weeks and they've made 200 sets of scrubs for the hospital, and for care homes and surgeries.

We desperately need more materials to continue this fabulous work."

Tim has been speaking to Yorkshire Coast Radio's Paddy in the Morning:

Anyone who would like to donate materials, or help deliver them, can contact Tim on 07980 290266 or
