The team use patterns from Scrub Hub. Fabric and materials are sourced from local businesses and thanks to a well-equipped department complete with pattern cutting tables, sewing machines and overlockers, production was able to get quickly under way.
We are delighted to announce that our ‘Scrubs with Love’ team’s first batch of surgical hats was extremely well received and they are already being worn by NHS staff at Kingston Hospital who were delighted with them.
As of Wednesday 13 May, the ‘Scrubs with Love’ team had created an extra nine bags and nine hats which will be sent for staff at Kingston Hospital, three bags for an army hospital while one whole scrub set and one hat will be going to GDST alumna (and speaker at Putney High) Dr Kate Mayers, an Obstetrician and Genealogical Consultant at the Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel. One hat will also be sent to a veterinary centre, whose company is giving up some of their PPE for the NHS.
To add a bit of extra love, the Junior School created rainbow transfers so that all the scrubs made would have a special rainbow printed on them.
