Scarborough NHS key workers and carers

For the love of scrubs

Our NHS & ALL CARERS need YOU! 


MANY THANKS - WE HAVE REACHED £500 AND IT IS STILL NOT THE END OF  MAY!!


The NHS is facing its biggest ever challenge and our doctors and nurses are seeing a shortfall in the supply of scrubs in the hospitals. Hospital and care staff, many of whom don't usually work in scrubs or who have come out of retirement to help the fight, are required to change scrubs several times a day to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19. 

Scarborough makers have been doing their bit already, largely self-funded, sending out handmade scrubs to our local hospital, GP's and care homes but they want to make more.

The initial For the Love of Scrubs campaign was started by Ashleigh Linsdell, an A&E nurse with a side-line in sewing who wanted to make scrubs for her department. She didn't realise the impact the shortages behind her campaign would have on us as a nation or how quickly word would spread and the scrubs making movement grow.

Funds raised here will be used by Scarborough makers to buy materials suitable to make scrubs which will be donated to Scarborough Hospital, other local NHS teams, GP's and carers who need them.
