Inspired by Ceris Kelland, the daughter of Lowestoft East Point Rotarian, Ian Davies, the three Rotary Clubs in Lowestoft have come together and purchased £1500 of material which will be made into Scrubs for front line NHS staff and Care Workers.

Ceris has turned her hand from making wedding dresses to making scrubs for NHS workers in Horsham, West Sussex as part of the “For the Love of Scrubs” network.

The Rotary Clubs have teamed up with local seamstresses, Norfolk Scrubs Volunteers, to make up scrubs for GP practices and Care Homes who are finding it difficult to source protective clothing during the current Covid -19 pandemic.

Pictured is Ian Davies handing over the first consignment to staff at Bridge Road Surgery with the Presidents of the Rotary Clubs of Lowestoft East Point, Les Davies and Lowestoft South, John Denby. The President of the Lowestoft Rotary Club, John Hunt, was unavoidably absent.
