Those magnificent women and their sewing machines

When the coronavirus began in china, HJ Colston-Inge (a mandarin speaker,  businesswoman and wife of the Bishop of Worcester) was in touch with a great friend based in Shangai, who worked in pharmaceuticals who asked how he could support our health care workers here in Worcestershire...

So began a conversation with the local hospital about the needs of the local NHS workers and following since both HJ and the Worcestershire's branch of the Mother's Union have raised over £6,000  for food parcels to be given to NHS staff and adjusted over 100 hospital scrubs and masks to help protect those on the frontline.Our regional correspondent Rachel Matthews, caught up with HJ as she paused from sewing, to find out about the work being done.
