Saint Cecilia’s Care Group has been given a selection of attractive, hand-made face coverings thanks to Scarborough businessman Kevin McCabe and Project COR (Colours of the Rainbow).

Mr McCabe, the owner of property developer Scarborough Group International, is supporting Shelagh’s Sewing Circle, a group of volunteers making face coverings.

They have kindly donated some to Saint Cecilia’s Care Group for staff to use off duty.

Saint Cecilia’s Managing Director Mike Padgham said: “It was very kind of Kevin McCabe and the members of Shelagh’s Sewing Circle to think of Saint Cecilia’s in this way and donate some very attractive and stylish face coverings for our staff.

“They will come in very useful to us and we are very grateful.”

Project COR (Colours of the Rainbow) has seen a hub set up in Sheffield to distribute the face coverings, with Mr McCabe providing both financial and administrative support to more than 100 volunteers involved.

More than 5,000 face coverings have been produced and distributed by Shelagh’s Sewing Circle.
