Scarborough Rotary Club Helps Local Scrubs Group

The Rotary Club of Scarborough Cavaliers has been acting as the material collection point for the Scarborough area “For the Love of Scrubs” group.

The group, which is making scrubs for local hospitals, GPs, care homes and Saint Catherine's, has made almost 1,400 sets of scrubs.

Rotary Club member, Udupa Venkatesh said:

“In addition, to collecting material the Club’s VirginMoney Giving website has raised almost £600 to buy much needed material, together with other items needed in the community.”

The scrubs are being created as there have been reports of the NHS seeing a shortfall in the supply of scrubs in hospitals and care sector.

The initial “For the Love of Scrubs” idea was started by Ashleigh Linsdell, an A&E nurse from Boston in Lincolnshire with a side-line in sewing, who wanted to make scrubs for her department.

Charlotte Hill, who began the Scarborough area group said:

“When Ashleigh started the national “For the Love of Scrubs” group no-one realised the impact her initiative would have and how quickly the scrubs making movement would grow.

Within days there were 1,000’s of scrubs makers across the country and local groups like ours had started."
