Wiggly Bag making

Join us in the stretch tent and help us make Wiggly Bags for local sick children.

Wiggly Bags are small hand stitched fabric bags used by children with Hickman lines. What’s a Hickman line I hear you ask? A Hickman line is a central venus catheter often used for administration of chemotherapy or other medication as well as the withdrawal of blood from analysis. Some types are used mainly for the purpose of apheresis or dialysis. 

You don’t need anything for this activity, everything provided.

We will provide small sanitised activity packs for each volunteer.

If the weather is poor this project may be cancelled.

Numbers are limited in line with government guidance, so you do have to sign up.

To sign up please email Becky on volunteerpw4.union@newcastle.ac.uk with the following info:

  • Name
  • 9 digit student ID number
  • University email address
  • Phone number

If you have any Covid-19 symptoms please do not sign up, on the day you will be required to socially distance and follow government guidance.
