There is a shortage of scrubs and other items in Hackney.
The local group for helping with this is at https://www.facebook.com/groups/1664878276997558/
For those who can sew, if you join (it's a private group, so you need to apply) there is a team liaising with the various hospitals and GP practices and allocating work to be done plus the fabric with which to do it. Don't worry if you're not experienced - they are pre-cutting scrub sets to send out to make it easier. Scrub bags are also needed and are very easy - you can use old sheets, pillowcases or similar to make these and the instructions are downloadable from the page.
For those who can't sew but still want to help, there are drivers needed to move fabric and finished goods, and a GoFundMe page, linked from the group, to raise funds for more supplies.
