Making equipment for Care home workers
A lady in conrtact with Winchcombe contacted care homes to see what they needed. The answer came back asking for headbands to protect their ears from the face masks they are having to wear. Their ears are getting very sore and headbands with buttons mean they can loop the face masks round the buttons rather than their sore ears. They need 30 - 40 because they need to wash the reusable equipment regularly.
Many Care homes are crying out for headbands and masks and they can use home made cloth ones, hospitals seem to only able use headbands.
Please conctact you local Care homes and Hospices near you to arange delivery, they will be greatful for you support.
