Sew Friendly group in Hyde make NHS gowns and raise money for Salisbury Hospice

Members of the Sew Friendly sewing group in Hyde, have kept busy during lockdown by making face masks and have now been commissioned to make gowns for NHS staff. They will receive a small payment for each gown made.

So far over 40 have been made and they are working on another 80.

Member of the group and former NHS worker Gaynor Hammond said: ” We all just wanted to do our bit to help and we have a skill we can use to make a difference.

“We have all elected to donate the money to Salisbury Hospice. As a volunteer at the hospice, I know they will be struggling for funding this year.”
