“I knew that the NHS staff at Hinchingbrooke Hospital were desperate for scrub bags to put their shoes and clothing in.

“So we attached the NHS logo to 500 bags, it took me, my husband and my children just under a week to make them.

“We would like to create more in the future, if they needed anymore.”

Johanne Catlin, from North West Anglia NHS Foundation Trust said: “The bags were very well received, staff loved them - they all went within a couple of hours.”
