Abstract / Description

Despite self-isolation, social distancing and NHS work during the COVID-19 pandemic, Sandra Denicke-Polcher and Anna Lawin-O’Brien found a way to make a joyous difference, connecting the community with healthcare providers on the shop floor. The article describes an initiative to provide face masks for NHS and key workers by connecting a community of home makers throughout the UK, with benefits to both, makers and receivers.
