Helping Dress Medics

HELPING DRESS MEDICS
This group 's aim is to make scrubs for medics dealing with the Covid-19 virus in hospitals.
The group was formed by various people who have worked together in the Costume Department of the tv series 'His Dark Materials', known as HDM, hence the group's title..
Several of the makers are in Cardiff (where the series was based). However, I'm in the north Cotswolds and another maker, Cathy,  is  in Plymouth. Cathy and I are both also organising for local help with our sewing. Similar schemes are now running very successfully in London and springing up elsewhere. 
Our aim is to keep it local and to supply to the hospitals closest by. This should make things quicker, keep costs down and ideally keep any risk of contagion to a minimum. 
We are liaising with hospital staff directly in the areas we live and taking advice from them about what they need, so that we can specifically help them.  The nature of how the virus is spread means that the demand for scrubs is especially high. 
Using our professional contacts, we are buying materials at the most reasonable prices possible, but it is still quite a considerable outlay.  
Any donation you could make would help directly with materials - all our labour is being given for free.
Should we exceed out target or there ever be any money left over, I plan to pass it  on to one of the companies who have repurposed their 3D printing facilities to now make protective face shields for the NHS.
