A keen seamstress, she turned her hand to sewing scrubs for care homes and other organisations as part of a Facebook group. Diane said: "I felt like I was a part of 'the war effort' that my parents had told many tales of, and I should use my skills to good use."
She added: "Soon our Facebook group had developed into local groups. We have a 'team leader' who co-ordinates everyone in our group and liaises with the main group. She organises drop off of the packs of cut out scrubs and pick-ups of the items we have produced. To help with the sewing, Diane has been allowed an hour-a-day of paid time off to assist http://nwcumbriascrubhub.co.uk/
