TWO sisters from Port Seton have been keeping busy during the Covid-19 lockdown by making face coverings.

Ivana and Tamara Scott, who are both pupils at Loretto School in Musselburgh, were keen to do something to help people during the coronavirus crisis.

Some of the face coverings have been distributed to family friends but the majority were given to a retirement home in Prestwick, where their grandparents live.

Ivana, 13, and Tamara, 12, plan to donate a further 30 masks to Chalmers Memorial Church in Port Seton.

Their proud mum Marina said: “Throughout the pandemic, my girls have seen many images and stories about other children providing help. They would often ask: ‘What can we do to help?’

“This was the one thing that we could definitely achieve and feel we were actually helping. All credit goes to them for their tenacity, for not giving up and seeing it through.”

She added: “Most of the supplies come from Amazon and, more recently, small independent online retailers, as the fabrics they chose to use were running low on stock pretty much everywhere. The same goes for elastic.”
