The University of Lincoln have opened up their fashion department to help create scrubs alongside community sewers in and around Lincoln which are being donated to Lincoln County Hospital and there have been some familiar designs…
For The Love Of Scrubs is a national campaign which was set up by Ashley Lindsell who is a nurse at Pilgrim Hospital in Boston.
Imps Season Ticket Holder and University of Lincoln fashion technician, Fiona Robertson alongside Holly Bryant and Pearl Constance are running this project locally to help kit out our NHS workers during the COVID 19 pandemic.
Fiona said, "Creating these scrubs not only means that staff have the right kit, it means that they know the local community is behind them and care about them. Lots of staff and patients are missing seeing the Imps so I hoped that the City themed scrubs would put a much needed smile on a few faces".
Imps supporter Helen Gill and University employee Jane Murray have been collecting donations of football fabric to help the cause and they were expertly sewn together by Terri Shinn; this is very much a team effort.
Volunteers (including former students, technicians and over 400 community sewers) are working extremely hard cutting and sewing scrubs for our healthcare workers in Lincolnshire. So far 3,674 scrubs, 5,422 laundry bags and 458 scrub hats have been delivered to Lincoln County which is making a real difference!
If you can sew and would like to help your local hospital or if you would like to donate LCFC fabric, you can get in contact with the team here; firstname.lastname@example.org who, with your help can create some scrubs for those NHS workers who love everything Lincoln City FC!
