Local company produces face mask kits for key workers

The Embroidery Barn in Dorchester have teamed up with Dorset Council and Bonjour Café to create fabric face masks.

They have put together a pack containing fabric, instructions and health guidelines for anyone that wants to help make the protective face wear.

They will deliver the kits to your front door and pick them up once you've made them. 

The masks were only going to be distributed to local food banks and to households who needed them in the local community. 

But since the demand for PPE is so high, they are now providing masks to Local GP's and care homes.

If you have a sewing machine and want to help protect front line workers, you can email hello@theembroiderybarn.co.uk for more information. 

The Embroidery Barn are an eco-friendly, local business based in Dorchester and provide embroidery and print on uniforms for local schools, businesses and sports teams.
