N4 Cutting Hub // Covid Emergency Response

The N4 Cutting Hub ran from 1st April 2020 until end of March 2021 in response to the PPE shortages during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The creation of the hub came about in response to having joined London Scrubs Hub to sew scrubs for the NHS. With extensive experience in operations management and a background in garment production I streamlined the workflow and set up what became a little factory in the hall of the church where I live. Since April 1st our amazing volunteers have produced nearly 2000 crowdfunded sets of scrubs for Camden & Islington NHS Foundation Trust, East Anglia's Children's Hospice, North London Hospice, St Anne's Nursing Home, Whittington Health NHS Trust and many more. 

In July the London Scrubs Hub closed but the N4 Cutting Hub carried on, switching to production of triple layered, quality, environmentally friendly masks for the community and carers. Our volunteers have been unstoppable, making over a whopping 6,000! 

For Christmas 2020 we sent 21 boxes of chocolates and 126 pizzas to staff at our local NHS hospital, The Whittington, as a tiny morale booster and a sign of our community's appreciation.

Our values were to keep each other safe and to support our community.  The Hub was a great source of support for everyone involved in the project and has created lasting connections in our community.
