go to a project called Blue Light Babies
4) Hope you are enjoying the lifeboat men and yellow wellies for the RNLI
5) It’s heading toward that time of year again!! Clare would love some of her knitting to help
with doing her shoeboxes for Operation Christmas child. She would like hats, mitt and
puppets and little bags suitable for 2–4-yearold boys and girls plus hats and fingerless
gloves for 10-14 year old boys and girls plus head warmers for girls.
