I have given away over 1000 masks. The last ones have all gone to charities and similar organisations - Sharewear, Nottingham & Notts Refugee Forum, Phoenix School foodbank, St Ann's foodbank, Host Nottingham . . .
I have decided to stop making them for individuals (unless you have a special request - e.g. hard to find size, special fabric; just ask) and concentrate on sewing for charities. My current batch is destined for Nad Grill.
If you're a local (Notts) charity or good cause that would like some free cotton face masks, please do contact me.
SOME GOOD CAUSES
For people who ask for suggestions of charities to donate to:
There are so many, I would like you to choose and donate so that I can spend time sewing, wire bending and elastic-threading.
But here are a few suggestons:
Nottingham & Notts Refugee Forum https://nottsrefugeeforum.charitycheckout.co.uk/Donate#!/
Mesopotamia Charity https://www.mesopotamia.org.uk/
Covid Symptom Study https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/…/displayCharityCampaignPa…
St Ann's Food Bank https://www.justgiving.com/xhqadyxshc/donate/…
Emmanuel House https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/…/displayCharityCampaignPa…
We R Here https://werhere.org.uk/
This page is new. I haven't had a chance to test all the links yet. If a link doesn't work, please just google the charity name.
Or choose another. Or don't make a donation. Masks I give out are gifts, and you are under no obligation to give anyone anything. If you do make a charitable donation in exchange for your mask(s), it would be nice if you could mention why.
