Crazy about Knitting Welcome to our April meeting.

Crazy about knitting

Welcome to our April meeting. Last month we boxed up and posted 3 boxes full of
hats, balaclavas, scarves etc. for the Seafarers Mission. We also, took 3 big bags for
Twiddlemuffs, lap blankets and teddies to Southmead Hospital, and 2 big bags of
teddies to The RUH Children’s outpatients. We also spent a day sorting and packing
up the blankets ready for Operation Orphan. Another amazing month for your lovely
knitting. Thank you!
Another thank you for all the wonderful chicks and bunnies, they were still as popular
as other years. So, another thank you.

Projects for April
1) Operation Orphan are busy working in Turkey at the moment, supporting
families in the earthquake region, giving out lots of blankets. So more
blankets for them would be great.
2) Southmead Hospital would love more Twiddlemuffs, lap blankets and
3) The Children’s Dept. at The RUH, Bath would love more teddies and the
Palliative Care Unit would also like more stuffed hearts.
4) Hats, Gloves, Balaclava’s and scarves would be great for the Seafarers
5) Innocent Hats for AgeUK Wiltshire would also be good. We have yet to count
the hats we’ve had in so far as we ran out of time. But you have managed to
fill a big drawer already. �
6) The Blue Light Project would still love some Twiddlemuffs and Teddies.

Wishing you all a very Happy Easter
