Crazy about Knitting

Crazy about Knitting

Welcome to our May meeting.
This month we have re-introduced the greeting cards for you. There is a basket of Sainsbury’s
cards which we are selling for just £1.00 each and handmade cards at only £1.25 each. All the
money raised is donated to The Cancercare Appeal at the RHU Bath. Have a good look through
and see what you fancy. It’s another step towards ‘normal’ ��
Southmead Hospital took a delivery of your lovely knitting, thanked us very much, but they now
have plenty to be going on with and will let us know as soon as they need more. So for the time
being we have no outlet for small crocheted blankets – unless you know of somewhere who would
like them.
Projects for May
1) AgeUK has until the end of June to collect another 1,000
innocent hats to beat their last years total. We’re sure we can help towards that, can’t we?
2) We have given one big box of children’s hats, gloves and scarves to a local lady colleting for
The Ukraine. She was so very grateful and asked if we ever had more she would love them. She
also asked if we would be interested in knitting some heart shaped Ukrainian flags to make as
badges.
3) Big blankets and puppets for Operation Orphan are still needed.
4) Twiddlemuffs and Teddies for The Blue Light Babies appeal.
5) Baby cardigan and baby blankets for Spurgeons, who help young mums and
family’s in Melksham and the surrounding area.
6) We will also continue with the knitted squared blankets for Hamlin Fistula who
support women and girls in Ethiopia, and the baby blankets.
7) Alabare in Chippenham love our adult hats, gloves, scarves, and blankets.
