Go Fund Me
As we continue to help and support our keyworkers of Birmingham we are 100% self-sufficient therefore crowd fund via the Go fund me platform. So far we have been supported by some great individuals and charities. To read more about this please take a look below
If you would like to support our cause and help us to continue purchasing much needed materials, please visit our Go fund Me Page and make a donation however small.
A £5 donation will craft a set of scrubs for a keyworker helping them to feel safer during these times. No amount is to little
WHO SUPPORTS US
For the Love of Scrubs Birmingham are proud to be supported by hundreds of people across the region within our community sewing group plateform. Below are some of the Companies & Charities that we work with.
Birmingham Voluntary Centre for Action
BVSC are passionate about making a positive difference to the lives of people in Birmingham and believe that the key to this is found in our communities. They have and continue to provide For the Love of scrubs Birmingham with support, sas they have done so since the very start of the pandemic. Paying homage to the team Benita, Jaz and Jacob for their help.
Chris and Noah Evans
The Radio 1 DJ Chris Evans encouraged and helped his Son Noah Evans to raise money to support causes just like ours! The Evans family enlisted some help in finding such groups and the wonderful Sunita Shroff flew our way with a wonderful fabric donation.
We thank Chris, Noah, Sunita and the team for all of their support as they kick started our efforts in a major way.
As you all know the rise in Covid19 cases led to a national lockdown coming into place on March 23rd 2020, (my now nine-year-olds birthday!) This saw many of our usual ‘places to go’ shut down for many months with many still unable to trade.
ASDA Superstores in Barnes Hill, Small Heath, Minworth and Queslett all are offering their services, drop boxes for volunteer angels were created so that completed makes could be taken to these ASDA stores in line with social distancing rules. ASDAs support continues to be invaluable!
MP Khalid Mahmood
Khalid Mahmood is a Labour Party politician who has served as the Member of Parliament (MP) for Birmingham Perry Barr since 2001 and as Shadow Defence Procurement Minister since 2020.
Mr Mahmood has shown immense support to our cause from the very start of this process particulary via social media and by donating to our group.
The Heart of England Community Foundation – Covid19 Resilience Fund
Heart of England Community Foundation understands the impact that the Coronavirus will have upon communities; personally, financially and in their capacity to be able to support their most vulnerable members.
The Heart of England have provided our group with funding in a bid to help us build, grow our efforts and provide much need support to our community and wider. This funding has enabled us to provide support to key workers as well as to angels who are part of this process.
