"Watching the news from my home country of Italy was painful and alarming, as the coronavirus took hold in the area where I grew up.
Having family there and around the world made me feel helpless. Like many others, I wanted to do something to help.
Looking around, I found the
Sewing for Our NHS
Facebook group... and I was inspired!
I put out a post and in hours I was overwhelmed by people's kindness.
I was not alone: people needed something to focus on, something to make them feel useful in the midst of this unreal situation.
Sacha soon jumped on board, and the two of us then reached out to our contacts and within weeks our group had grown from 2 to 40 people.
In time we discovered the
North and East London Sewers - For the Love of Scrubs
Facebook group and joined forces,
this collaboration has being very important and successful."
