Face Masks for Lupus UK
*** Due to unprecedented demand (I have now made over 750), my books are temporarily closed , but I have a few in stock (please enquire) - please follow my Facebook page @dancetutus.co.uk to find out when I have face masks ready and available, and can take your order again***
I'm now making handmade face masks in exchange for donations to Lupus UK. I was asked by friends to make their families masks, and it seems there is a wider demand. In a week I had over 100 orders, and raised £400 for charity - THANK YOU! We've now raised over £3500!
The masks are reversible (typically patterned one side, plain the other, or just plain - mostly for the men!); have 3 layers (including filter layer); and are machine washable. One size fits adults / teens, and I do a smaller child size. I have to isolate for at least 12 weeks so can't deliver, so please plan to collect from Lacock, Wiltshire, whilst doing your weekly shopping trip, or I can post (£1.50 P&P and please club together with friends / families, so I can send them in batches if possible). If there is a fabric you particularly like, I'll do my best, but can't promise. Just to be clear ALL the money you donate will go to the charity.
All made in a smoke-free, pet-free, Corona-free environment (we’ve been isolating for 3 weeks now!)
I’ve also had some friends ask for help to start making face masks themselves, so I’ve cobbled together this video. Good Luck.
IF YOU CAN AFFORD TO DONATE I'D BE SO GRATEFUL. I'M DOING THIS COMPLETELY FOR FREE.
