Alton Webteam: June 2015
Immediately after sending in the article for the June edition of Sunrise, I found an enormous bag of beautifully crafted and colourful knee blankets and bed throws at the back of All Saints Church. Very many, many thanks to whoever made or collected them. They have been taken to, and gratefully received at, local nursing homes and residences for the elderly.
We are now concentrating on the prem baby covers — double knit, not lacey, in pastel colours approximately 24" square.
The donations of wool are also so very useful.
Many thanks to you all, known and unknown.
Keep up the good work
