Ryedale Scrubs for the Community
During the Easter holidays, Miss Shipley and her family have been busy co-ordinating a new project which was set up last week to make and supply protective wear for local key workers. The group is called Ryedale Scrubs for the Community and has so far raised £6000 to buy material and patterns. There are currently 90 people signed up to sew, including staff, parents and students in college, along with 25 delivery drivers and two 3-D print machines running full time. They are supplying hats, bags, scrub uniforms, face shields and mask clips to our local doctors' surgeries, care homes and hospitals free of charge, due to the generosity of the community.
"If you would like to help and donate to the cause or want to help make some of these items, then the students have access to files in the PSHE and Wellbeing area of Microsoft Teams. There will be a box outside the college front door where students are able to leave their finished goods.
