Rotary in nightwear appeal for hospital patients

A Shropshire rotary club is appealing for donations of pyjamas and nightwear to help people in hospital who can’t receive visitors in the coronavirus crisis.

One concern during the current pandemic has been the inability of families to comfort relatives in hospital due to the restrictions on visits.

As a result, patients often lack a spare change of clothing and have to use standard hospital gowns during their stays in hospital and when discharged home.

Rotary in Market Drayton are aiming to help the Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust respond to the problem by holding a drop off-point for pyjamas and nightwear in the garden centre at Morrisons from 10.30am to 12.30pm this Saturday, February 20.

Thanks to the generosity of the management and staff at the supermarket, the drop off point will be open from 10.30am to 12.30pm and all donations will be accepted.

Rotarians, who can be contacted via illumi@icloud.com or 07752 216306, are also happy to collect items outside the above hours if necessary.

All nightwear donated will need to be small, medium, large or extra large in size, easy to wear and provide a high degree of modesty, with no loose threads. The items must also be fire retardant.
