Wow didn’t we do well? So well in fact that this little lot completely filled 3 black bin liners.
In total there were:-
- Hats – 110
- Scarves/Cowls – 86
- Gloves/Mitts – 39
All of you that gave your time, energy, skill, yarn and most importantly care should be so proud of yourselves. When Deena from The Chernobyl Children’s Trust came to the shop to collect the garments she was honestly shocked to see how many items we had.
The organisers gave out as many woolly items to the visiting children as they could before they flew home and intend to send any that are left over later in the year. There are 2 lorries traveling over to Belarus later this year hopefully, full to the brim with everything the charity can collect in to help as many families as possible.
The charity are still keen on trying to get unwanted pairs of knitting needles in if possible. I know we’ve already sent a good few over but if you have anymore please let me know.
A big thank you once again to everyone that contributed.
