The Story of Homemade Masks

by Tilly Charlton-Thomson

When the COVID-19 pandemic struck the UK and the country was placed in lockdown in March 2020 I was, like many of my friends, frightened and worried about the future.

As soon as it became clear that wearing a face-covering would help to protect people and keep us safe I knew that I could do something to help.

I started making masks for my family and friends and came across a charity looking to help refugee children so I decided to set up Homemade Masks and with every order placed I made a mask for a child living in poverty.

So far hundreds of children have been able to benefit from a free mask with a PM2.5 filter.
