Group members laugh and share stories while knitting
OUR group of residents and volunteers met recently and spent another productive morning knitting and, of course, nattering.
The group welcomed Lorraine Wood and June Willis from Peregian Beach Community House Knit for Charity.
Lorraine and June came to personally thank the ladies for their contributions of squares and rugs for the needy.
We have now completed more than 25 blankets, some of which will be distributed to the needy at the Homeless Connect Day.
Lorraine and June, along with volunteers Wendy, Isabel, Heather and Jan, related stories of the increasing need for rugs and blankets in the cooler months.
Items donated by Arcare Peregian Springs are distributed in Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast through such organisations as Knit for the Needy Brisbane and Winter Angels.
The group consists of residents and some of their daughters. We are always very excited to see how lovely our squares look when put together.
We have at least 12-14 in the knitting group.
They all love the socialising, laughing, sharing stories, but most of all the sense of continuity in helping the community.
