A recent new member of Sale Inner Wheel, Jean Muriel, has been busy during the coronavirus pandemic. She’s been working with the Altrincham and Sale Makers Hub. This was set up in response to the the Covid 19 emergency in March to assist with the provision of scrubs and other PPE needed by NHS workers. There are approximately thirty ladies in the group making gowns, scrubs, scrub bags and headbands.
In addition people have supplies fabric and haberdashery or cash to purchase any requirements. The finished items have been sent to hospitals such as Salford Royal and Wythenshawe. Local medical practices have also benefitted and more recently they have been asked to make face masks for local surgeries.
