The Elders Group at the Wellington Information and Neighbourhood Services (WINS) are dedicated to helping the community through mask making.
WINS Community Centre CEO Helen Swan said the women have noticed an influx of people in the Wellington community who they were not familiar with and began making masks as they worried about a second wave of COVID-19.
"It's something they can do to help the Wellington community and a practical thing to do," Ms Swan said.
"They also see the need to protect themselves and others during this time."
The Elders Group gather every Tuesday, as they have been doing for the past three years.
"They are a wonderful group of committed women concerned for the safety of the community and want to help," Ms Swan said.
