Kate Dando: April 2016
Knitters Anonymous have linked up with 'Bags of Love', Barnstaple, Devon, who are only too pleased to receive the many the knitted and crochet blankets, hats, scarves and gloves that are made in Alton by our group.
These are despatched, along with other donated items, to the migrant camps at Calais.
Many blankets also continue to go, locally, to our Residential Homes for the Elderly, where, as knee blankets, they keep people warm and cosy.
The prem baby clothes are most welcome at our local hospitals; please remember to make them in 4ply wool in pastel shades. Competed items, if left at the back of All Saints church, are collected regularly Suggested patterns can be found in the folder on the pew at the back of the church, but do use your favourite patterns if you prefer.
Thank you all so much for your support.
The knitting (and crochet) done by you all is really appreciated.
