Herefordshire based Tailor, Curtis Fulcher from PudlestonMakes, has raised over £600 for NHS Charities Together selling facemasks online to customers worldwide.
The facemasks were a drafted, adapted style to give maximum comfort to the face from feedback from some users. The fabric used has mainly been upcycled breathable scrap fabric such as cotton, that would have ended up on landfill if not used.
NHS Charities Together is a collective representing and championing the work of NHS official charities. The money goes towards providing vital funds to help the NHS do more.
Pudleston Makes is a Herefordshire based company that specialises in costume, couture and vintage makes. The company works a lot with overseas clients and the lockdown period has been busier than ever with online orders and international shipping.
Curtis Fulcher from Pudleston Makes, said: “It is great to be able to do something for charity, however small. I am also pleased that some of my leftover fabric from garment creation will look wonderful on people’s faces. Patrick Grant from the Great British Sewing Bee has done a great campaign to get people to make their own, if you have a sewing machine why not give it a go”.
