Nearly 300 volunteers have contacted The GP Clinic in Lucan Street to help sew personal protective gowns.
GP Dr Nicole Townsend said the response has been tremendous.
"We have been overwhelmed by the support we have received, with 287 volunteers ready to sew," Dr Townsend said.
Gowns for Doctors, the brainchild of The GP Clinic, is a way of addressing their lack of protective gowns.
As reported in Thursday's Bendigo Advertiser, a central Victorian shortage of personal protective equipment, including gowns, led to Dr Townsend and her team sewing their own gowns for patient consults.
The gowns are worn over scrubs, single use and laundered professionally.
The clinic is now seeking donations or funding for the 100 per cent cotton that is used to make the gowns, which it hopes to distribute across central Victoria.
