Janet Death and Liz Waterman are producing and delivering face coverings to those in the Village who wish to have something to cover their face. They are made of cotton and can be washed at 60 degrees which is advised after each wearing.
Use of this type of covering will hopefully prevent people diverting surgical grade masks for personal use.
We are not charging for these masks but if you feel able please make a donation to Kidasha preferably online at www.kidasha.org the children of Nepal would be very grateful.
Cash/cheques can also be posted in an envelope through the door of 8 Castle Keep if you prefer.
Janet is making the masks from materials we have both sourced including old stock of Kidasha tea towels and Liz is coordinating orders and deliveries.
Local bus provider Salisbury Reds* have asked people to cover their faces when using their buses and some GP practices have also asked patients to provide their own masks to preserve their stocks.
Face masks come in two styles and with a choice of 2 fastenings.
· Shaped with either elastic or ties
· Pleated with either elastic or ties.
If you would like a face covering please contact Liz by e-mail letting her know the number, style and fastening you would like Elizabeth@waterman.org.uk or if not possible please phone her on 01722 335691
