AWESOME EFFORT: Kings Langley community helps make scrubs for Watford General Hospital

 Published on: 1st June 2020   |   By: Amneet Kaur   |   Category: Uncategorized

Kings Langley resident Ann Johnson has been providing Watford General Hospital with scrubs, with the help of other professional sewers.

Ann said: “Initially so many people wanted to help, a local person had the idea, put it on Facebook and it blew out of proportion.

“I put a notice up on Facebook asking if there were any professional sewers available to help. The scrubs should have been made to a professional quality, they have to go through professional laundries and be washed at 60 degrees.

“I have teamed up with a lady in Hemel who has already set up a supply chain for pre-cut scrubs which need sewing together. She is linked with Dulcie Scott’s group, who is in the costume design trade and is now making hospital scrubs. Another lady in Watford was also involved.”

Kings Langley School helped and supported the project, they allowed the sewers to go in and use their textile department and also donated money to buy more material.

Thanks to the help of all the people involved, around 1,400 scrubs have been donated.
