with the caption: "I adore you, Eddie. Thank you for coming out with me last week
and their amazing volunteer team making scrubs for the NHS."
One of the volunteers shared this photo on her blog and was like,
“Eddie Redmayne has come to make scrubs for medical staff.
He was humble as I’ve heard. He was working hard on it, cutting
cloth as he was taught and sometimes with a smile on his face.”
Katherine Waterston and Jude Law are both regular SpareHand volunteers,
and last week Eddie Redmayne joined his Fantastic Beasts co-stars too.
"At the start of the pandemic, I got COVID-19 and was hospitalized here
in London, where I received fantastic treatment from the NHS. While
I was recuperating at home and considering how I might meaningfully
give back, my friend Scott Liddle told me about his idea for SpareHand,
and I immediately jumped on board. It’s been great to be part of SpareHand
and to witness its phenomenal growth in just a couple of months. It’s been
great to see how individuals and charities alike have taken to the service;
to hear them rave about its ease of use is really encouraging. I have always
suspected that there’s a large portion of the population who want to volunteer
but are deterred from doing so because they don’t know how or where or
like me, they have schedules that make it difficult to commit to regular
service – SpareHand solves all these problems." - Katherine Waterston
