Sewn bags to donate to hospitals, called syringe driver bags. These are used by patients to disguise vital equipment if they have to carry it with them when they are discharged. They will be donated to NPNGUK (no pain, no gain, UK) via the Whittlesey branch and distributed to hospitals in the area.

(Dimensions for these bags are 24″x10″, folded widthways and 2 thicknesses, strap 55″ longĀ  and cut 5″ wide, to make it approx 2 1/4″ wide). Bags with straps short enough for children are also needed.

Massive thanks to everyone.
