Men’s Shed Carn delighted to
receive face masks
MEN’S Shed Carn were
delighted this week to receive over 50 face masks
from Inishowen Mask Makers.
Philip Doherty from Men’s Shed Carn said: “Many of
the members of the shed were keen to get hold of
face masks for when they have to go out and about
for necessary trips. However, many weren’t sure how
to get hold of these reusable ones. When we put the
call out asking if anyone would like a mask, we were
surprised at how many members came back to us."
Men’s Shed Carn receive over 50 face
masks from Inishowen Mask Makers.
“Inishowen Mask Makers and one of its sewers Mary
Doherty (Brick), who is also a Men’s Shed Carn
member, were incredibly generous and made the masks
for us and our families with no questions asked. We
are delighted to receive them and this means a lot
to people who feel vulnerable at the minute and we
can’t thank them enough.
“Any other members who would like one of these masks
is asked to get in touch with us via Facebook or
Messenger and we will be happy to arrange for them
to get one. The shed members made a small donation
to the service and hope that this will enable them
to buy more elastic or whatever they need to keep
this vital service going."
Mary Doherty, one of the sewers on this project
said: “We now have over 60 sewers and cutters from
across Inishowen working on this very important
service. Anyone else who can sew who would like to
give some of their time is asked to get in touch
with Marjorie on Facebook on MMD Embroidery.
Similarly, if anyone else need masks please get in
touch as we can arrange delivery across Inishowen."
