“It is heart-warming, it’s our small way of doing something and it makes us feel that we are helping.”

Clara Maybin is part of a production line made up of hundreds of people across Northern Ireland who are making scrubs for healthcare workers.

They are called NI Scrubs and within three weeks, they have made thousands of medical uniforms.

“It’s hectic, too, but we are finding our feet,” she says.

“We now have a system and a structure that we needed in order to fulfil the demand.”

It started when her husband’s aunt who works in a Covid-19 centre said they would soon need more scrubs.

A Facebook page was set up and the orders started pouring in.
