update: A huge thank you to Jay Kleinberg who has
been beavering away making masks for
everyone. 86 cup masks and 28 letterbox masks have been cut out, pinned
together, sewn and delivered to people in Pirbright and the surrounding
villages. This project, which not only has served a safety purpose to many, has
also allowed people to have personalised masks including fun Christmas ones,
and there have been a few requests for their football club colours. Aldershot Town supporters now have a few
custom-made masks in their club’s strip colours. The total money raised from this project
comes to £600.
We are all having to get used to the idea of wearing facemasks in indoor public places, to help keep ourselves and others safe during the corona virus crisis. But the sheer number of masks needed is creating two new problems - diverting resources away from front line services who need them, and generating mountains of plastic waste from disposable masks being used and thrown away. So we are making and selling washable, reusable cotton face masks, both for the holiday period and thereafter. The masks come in a wide range of attractive colours and prints. They are reversible, have three layers of cloth and a small, flexible metal insert so that you can shape them to fit your face. You can wear them with confidence, drop them in your ordinary wash and have a clean one to wear next day. You can match with your outfit and, in a busy household, you will always know which masks are yours!
We are offering two styles, either letterbox or cup shaped for a suggested donation of £5. All proceeds will go to St Michael and All Angel’s Church.
To make things as easy as possible, there is a selection of festive and ordinary fabrics, with a corresponding number next to it. There is also an order form.
1. Simply choose your 1 or 2 colours of fabric.
2. For the Festive Face Masks you can have the festive print on one side and solid red, green, black or white on the reverse if you prefer.
3. Indicate whether you want letterbox or cup style and how many you require.
4. Fill in contact details then email to the Social and Fundraising team
5. Then sit back and wait for your chosen mask to be lovingly and carefully made and delivered to you. Payment of donation on delivery.
If you have trouble filling in the order form, just sent your request to the above email. Or call Helen on 07777659138 if you have any questions.
