Laundry bags to help NHS staff
"We can now safely transport and wash our clothes"
Witney Community Hospital received a lovely gift from Kay Shortland from Milton-Under-Wychwood, Chipping Norton.
She has made the hospital team drawstring laundry bags to put their uniforms in. She is also going to make some headbands to hold masks, all for free.
“The bags are very important and helpful, and it was extremely kind of Kay to have made them. We can now safely transport and wash our clothes without risking any spread of the coronavirus to our families,” said deputy ward manager Roxy Williams from the Wensric Ward.
“The staff are chuffed.”

Local craft groups in Oxfordshire have made some 1,500 laundry bags, which Oxford Health Charity’s Creating with Care programme is distributing to wards at the trust. If you would like some please contact Angela.Conlan@oxfordhealth.nhs.uk and state how many you would like.
