All stitched up

Nifty fingered knitters from St Annes on Sea have been busy creating colourful comfort blankets for our Happy House kids.
All through last winter and into spring the super stitchers who meet every week at St Annes War Memorial Housing Association's community room, have been spurred on by the thought of helping our children in an effort prompted by retired tram driver Jane Paul.
And yesterday, they handed over the blankets to Elizabeth Gomm  who enjoyed a cuppa and chat while she told them a bit more about Mama Sue, Papa Dave and our family.
With all the other blankets and woollies we have had donated, we now have all we need, especially as it is, most of the time, so hot. 
The generous knitters said that they were happy for us to take out just those we need for our children and to sell any others we cannot use, which we will do.
They are also considering holding a fundraising event to help our Happy House and we look forward to seeing them all again.
Thank you ladies!
*There are so many kind people who want to make items for our children, but it would be really helpful if you could, please,  check with Sue or Elizabeth before embarking on any  projects as we have to get everything out by post (which is expensive) or in the personal luggage allowances of those visiting.
