Wisbech mum is using fabric from her children's wear business to make surgical-style masks
A Wisbech mum who makes handmade children's clothing is using off-cuts left over from her business to make surgical-style masks.
Jodiy Smithee, of Redmoor Lane, has turned her hand to mask making using the material leftover from the clothes she makes and sells through her business - PoppyKraft.
She is donating masks to local NHS staff and has already handed some over to both the North Brink and Clarkson Surgeries in Wisbech as well as other frontline workers.
Jodiy is also selling masks to others at £3 each plus postage and package .
Posting on Facebook last week Jodiy explained she was trying to source the necessary filter material to ensure the masks are compliant for use by the NHS in hospitals, but she is still making masks for others to use.
She is also urging customers to only buy what they need adding: "They are machine washable, but I can only make so many."
Masks can be ordered via the PoppyKraft website: https://www.pkkids.co.uk/product-page/fabric-face-masks
