Heartfelt Products, which manufactures a range of products to aid the disabled and to promote health in individuals, is appealing to North Devon residents who can sew and have a sewing machine who can help produce medical ‘scrubs’ for doctors, health workers and carers.
Managing director Denise Anstey, an award-winning inventor and product designer, is concerned that the protective garments are in short supply and would like to be able to manufacture them so they can be supplied at a low cost.
“I saw on social media that some staff have no protection and have ordered fabric and patterns so that people can make them from home,” says Denise. “We are suspending normal business for a few weeks and going to help support the NHS and our carers and GPs in North Devon.
“We will help by trying to provide scrubs for nurses, doctors, staff and carers. We need to look after the people on the front line.”
Denise asks anyone wanting to sew from home or anyone looking for scrubs to email her for details at firstname.lastname@example.org
