Sydney sewing community to the rescue

Sew-a-scrub is an initiative by the volunteer team from the Chris O’Brien Lifehouse Artierie Group. The award winning arts program is traditionally used to help patients in cancer treatment. However when the team heard health professionals of Sydney were running short of much needed personal protective equipment such as scrubs and masks, they turned their skills to help. 

Sewers from around Sydney are making scrubs from donated fabric. The traditional blue garb doctors usually don, is being replaced by florals, spots and animal prints. 

Karen Heath, the Volunteer manager at Chris O’brien Lifehouse, joined our host Sean Britten to talk about her crafty crew.
