The Ettington Spar shop and Insomnia Coffee Company have been selling handmade, reusable facemasks for the last few months and the money raised from these has been donated to charities, including Myton!
Andrew Nardone, who owns the shop and café, was approached by...
Lindsey Yarrow about making masks and selling them to the local community. A group of residents began sewing masks and the money raised from selling them has been split between Myton, Shipston Home Nursing, Shakespeare Hospice and The Air Ambulance Service.
With government guidelines now advising people to wear a face covering on public transport, in shops, funeral directors, cinemas and theatres, museums and galleries, salons, places of worship and more, the people of Ettington making masks are providing a vital service!
Community Fundraiser at Myton, Anita Burrows, said:
We’ve received over £1,000 thanks to the sale of masks in Ettington which is amazing! We cannot thank Andrew and everyone who has been making and buying the masks enough for their generosity. Support like this is vital in such uncertain times and everyone at Myton is incredibly grateful.
We are also selling facemasks with the Myton butterfly on in our hospices and shops, priced at £4.50 each.
