Bradford Together and Community Action Bradford & District are producing 100,000 washable face coverings for vulnerable people and communities in Bradford.

The ‘Sew and Save Lives’ campaign aims to reach people who have been unable to access face coverings for a variety of reasons, which has led to some being isolated within their community.

The organisations are seeking support from local businesses to help reach their target of 100,000 masks through donations and by encouraging companies and employees to make masks.

Bradford Together and Community Action Bradford & District are providing template packs and instructions in multiple languages for people willing to support their cause.

Luke Dennison, Business Broker at Bradford Together, said “We know Businesses across the country have been phenomenal in supporting their local communities, charities and community organisations.

“This campaign is great for businesses, giving them an opportunity to continue that support and involve staff in an engaging and worthwhile cause. “

Face coverings can be returned to three drop-off points in Bradford: City Hall in Bradford, HALE in Shipley and Action Point in Keighley.

Bradford Together is a project set up by Participate Projects, to support the community’s Coronavirus response, recovery and rebuilding.
