It’s a Bibble has joined with the Women’s Institute (WI) and Playworks Scrapstore to help child cancer patients at the Queens Medical Centre in Nottingham by donating unused materials from their bandana bibs to make “wiggly bags”.
The child oncology ward at the Queen’s Medical Centre asked for help making the “wiggly bags” which are necessary for their young patients during their cancer treatment. The “wiggly bag”, which is a small material bag used to house the line used for the administration of life-saving drugs, is worn by the child throughout their treatment to hold the line in place. The Wollaton WI and Playworks Scrapstore have joined forces with It’s a Bibble to help make as many of these essential bags as possible.
It’s a Bibble’s owner, Linda Percival heard about the cause and was keen to get involved. Linda commented: “It’s brilliant what they do and to see them make good use out of material we don’t need.”
Resource Development Manager Ellen Smith from Playworks Scrapstore comments: “It’s great that we can take companies’ waste and put it to such a good cause. What the ladies do in making these bags is incredible and it makes a big difference to the children.”
After a letter from the QMC asking for help the Wollaton WI knew they wanted to get involved. Each child needs five different “wiggly bags” during their treatment which must be cleaned each day to prevent infection. Eileen Kearsley, Wollaton’s WI President has said: “We have made bigger bags in the past for the Breast Cancer Wards, so I knew we could do this as well. We made 100 to start with and it just went from there. Now, we have made more than 860 in almost a year.”
The scrap material that It’s a Bibble donates is left over from the handmade bandana bibs that they make for babies and toddlers. Larger size adult bibs are also made for older children and adults with special needs.
