Feel free to get in touch with any of these great theatre coimpanies if you can help with donations of fabric or anything that might help them to make the scrubs so desperately needed by the NHS.

The wardrobe department at the Crucible in Sheffield have been busy supporting Yorkshire hospitals.


Heartlands and Solihull hospitals are being supported by the staff at Birmingham Rep.


Cate Mackie is rounding up support from Dundee Rep for Dundee, Perth and Teeside to make up 5000 sets of scrubs.

If you know me you know I hate being on camera … so I’m hiding behind my sewing machine … but I’m braving it for a very good reason!! ❤️❤️
