Flannels for John Ratcliffe Hospital

A message from Jean Vaughan, Action & Outreach Committee…

When you go our for a meal and are offered a hot towel afterwards, do please ask the waiter what happens to the used ones. I did this in our local Indian restaurant recently and found that the woven towels go into landfill as the company making them doesn’t want them returned!

So now the waiters put them in a pot which I collect weekly. I wash the towels and IRON them when they are dry so that Alison (and anyone collecting for another hospital) has a great source of sterile flannels for the toiletry bags prepared for the patients.

Win Win, as they say.

PS: If there are some that are damaged or too dirty then very probably your local charity shop collects rags for sale. Oxfam certainly does.
