If you have some wool taking up space in the bottom draw of that dresser, consider donating to these lovely causes! Your donations of wool can be dropped off to reception at the Support Centre, 407 Moray Place, Dunedin, or you can give us a call on 03 477 7115 and we can arrange a pick-up. We can also arrange pickup from the regions!
We were delighted to receive a call recently from Chaplain Jennifer McLeod at Columba College to say the girls are keen to start knitting Peggy Squares, to make blankets for our PSO clients this winter.
Last winter the girls made 10 blankets and donated these to clients of Family Works. It was a great feeling to pass the blankets on to adults and children, who were delighted with the results. But, their supply of wool is running really low now, so they would love to receive good wool of any colour.
This is one of our group programmes (please see page 5 for more about their activities) and it includes some very dedicated knitters who enjoy creating together and also selling their works to raise funds for excursions and other activities. They are especially keen to receive brightly coloured wools, as they have a good stock of brown, neutrals and autumnal colours.
