Can you help VODA make Face Coverings for vulnerable people attending their GP appointments?
VODA's SAINT project are looking for volunteers who can help make face coverings for vulnerable people living in North Tyneside who aren’t in a position to go and buy one.
These coverings will be donated to local GP surgeries and will be given to patients in advance of their appointment or prior to entering the building.
By making face coverings for the community, we can help reduce anxieties and worries about attending GP appointments and help people return to a 'new normal'.
VODA would like help with…
Cutting out the pattern pieces
If you live in North Tyneside the fabric and pattern will be dropped off at your house and picked up when you have finished the cutting. All you need is a pair of scissors! The cut-out pattern pieces will then be sent to those who are offering their support by sewing up the face coverings.
Sewing the pattern pieces together
If you live in North Tyneside the pattern pieces will be delivered to your door all cut out and ready to sew. You will be supplied with a pattern and elastic.
If you fancy cutting out and sewing up then that would be great also! If you are an accomplished sewer and prefer to use your own pattern that's great too as there are a number of free patterns obtainable on the internet.
