Do you stand for women's rights and are interested in making cushions to provide comfort for women who are post-operative of breast surgery?

The role

Inspired by Zonta Breast Care Cushions (also known as mastectomy pillows) we are encouraging people with sewing skills to explore using their abilities to offer a much needed source of comfort and support to individuals, both women and men, during the crucial post-operative phase of breast surgery.

This DIY volunteer opportunity encourages you to get out into community to find someone/somewhere that would benefit from the gift, and to get creative in following a sewing pattern to completion.

Need to know

Equipment and materials are not supplied.
Highly recommend supervision for under 18's.
