Caterham Overseas Aid Trust (COAT) Masks Enterprise

We are aware that from 24th July it has become mandatory to wear masks in a variety of places.  We hope that you decide to wear one of our cover all masks which are rather different from those you can buy on line or in the shops!

Donations will support a project, in the Karonga district of Malawi, named ‘Clean Hands, Safe Hands’ and will provide each every family with 8 bars of soap.  (See link above.) The project will be educating local communities with information that regular hand washing with soap helps prevent the spread of many diseases, including Covid-19.  It also aims to improve awareness of social distancing in staving off Covid-19.

We are very pleased to welcome Frances Loveless on to the COAT Committee as representative of the Caterham United Reformed Church.  When she heard about the Self help Africa COVID-19 project, Frances decided to start making masks for sale here to raise extra money for the appeal.  She has, on her own initiative, already raised over £800!

From Frances, to remind you:

  • The masks are lined, come in a standard size in a variety of colours – can be plain or patterned so I only need to know if they are for men or women.
  • Colours and designs will be whatever comes out of the box but I won’t be sending men a floral patterned mask unless it’s requested.
  • Remember these are fabric face coverings so are not suitable for those who have underlying health problems or require a surgical mask.
  • Unfortunately children come in too many sizes and age does not relate to size so these masks are only suitable for teenagers and adults.


Please pass this on to your friends in the area so they know we are now back in business. You can contact me to order either by telephone: 01883 337 046 or by email:
