A request to make fabric face masks to protect against COVID-19 and to raise funds for the North West Hospice was initiated by pharmacist Kay Curley from Higgins Pharmacy on Teeling Street, Sligo in March of 2020. The call was answered by many volunteers from St. Angela’s College and other sewing enthusiasts in Sligo and the surrounding area. What started out as a fundraiser hoping to raise €3,000 ended up raising €10,550 and is still growing. The initiative was advertised on Facebook, in text groups, emails and by word of mouth and customers from as far as Cork, Waterford and Galway all placed their orders. The masks went on sale in Higgins Pharmacy at €10 each with all the proceeds going to the North West Hospice. A dedicated team of sewing volunteers included BAPME Home Economics students and staff from St. Angela’s College, friends of the College and sewing enthusiasts in the locality made the individually designed cotton face masks. A cheque for €10,550 was presented to representatives of the North West Hospice in June on behalf of Higgins Pharmacy and the group of volunteers. Many thanks to all those who gave their time so willingly making the masks including students Lauren Cawley and Kimberly Austin from the BA PME Home Economics Programme, staff including Ursula O’Shea, Mary Clare Conneelly, Denise Kenna, Linda Kerlin and sewing enthusiasts Bernie Brooks, Kathleen Healy, Jo Mullen, Anna O’Brien, Darrie McCoy, Maree Cooney, Leanne Moran, Mary Walsh, Laura Byrne and Mary Dunbar.
