AN Anniesland student at Glasgow Clyde College has been raising funds and sewing scrubs for health workers.

Emily Barker, 20, a fashion and textiles student, has raised more than £1,000 for material which she is turning into protective clothing.

She is making more than 80 sets of scrubs from 320 metres of fabric, using her pattern reading and cutting skills she has learned.

Emily, from Forres, said: “My mum taught me to sew when I was younger, and I was so keen to move to Glasgow and pursue the fashion textiles course.

“While I had basic knowledge, the techniques I’ve learned in first year has allowed my mum and me to follow a pattern and quickly produce more sets of scrubs for local frontline workers.

“I saw the ‘For the Love of Scrubs’ fundraiser online, which was set up by a frontline worker.

“I decided I could help make a difference.”
