Alton Webteam: January 2017
Members of the Knitters Anonymous group had certainly had a busy Christmas! With all the previous blankets, toys and clothing sent to Aleppo via the appeal made from the landlady The George in Alton, the stock was speedily replenished at the first meeting of the new year. Again many knitted and crochet blankets plus a bag full of hand sized toys were brought in, the toys heading for Honduras and the blankets etc. for the refugee charities. The group were also donated seven bags of beautiful new balls of wool, enough to keep everyone knitting well into this year! Any of our really anonymous friends(and there are quite a few of you out there judging by the knitted items left at the back of All Saints church) are invited to use this wool if they get in touch with the group via Kate 83514. Thank you all for your generosity of skills and ti.
