Alton Webteam: October 2016
The support from Knitters, known and unknown, never ceases to amaze me. We
just clear all the garments and blankets on to the various charities
supported by the group and, lo and behold, more bags full appear; jumpers,
scarves, gloves, hats, jumpers, knitted toys and blanket squares all
beautifully made in lovely soft, colourful wools.
A recent 'thank you' from Bliss (for babies born too soon, too small, too sick) which delivers to
thirteen units in the south is very appreciative of the tiny garments they
receive. The small soft hand-size toys are on their way to Zimbabwe as you
read this. Larger knitted toys will go either to the Women's Shelter or
will be included in the Shoe Box appeal donation. Having just received a
very generous donation of five large bags of wool, do not hesitate to
contact me should you need some.
Thank you so much to you all
