Care and Share – Take time to knit
BY MARY RUFFHEAD AND VIV MOORE
Since July 2012 we have received 9,670 items of knitted and crocheted blankets and vests for babies and children; as well as baby’s bootees, socks, hats, scarves, mittens, cardigans, dresses and toys.
We would like to thank all who contribute towards this worthwhile project. Generous people like yourselves come from a wide area of the UK; Plymouth, Broadstairs, Barnstaple, Braunton, London, Southampton, Bournemouth, Scotland, Wales and Torquay. We are truly amazed at how this project has sparked so much interest, and thank the Lord Jesus for you all.
Where will your knitted/crocheted items go?
Goods have been successfully distributed to Nepal, the foothills of the Himalayas, Varanasi, Kolkata and the Sundarbans, Allahabad and the surrounding villages, the Philippines, Southern India, the Andaman Islands, and Pakistan.
How your work has helped
You have touched the lives of many babies, children and adults, some of whom are in orphanages or victims of great poverty and deprivation. Your hand of love and compassion in the goods you have made for these little ones has, and will continue to have, a huge impact on their lives.
Viv Moore and Mary Ruffhead (the main distributors for the items) would like to sincerely thank you all.
