A lovely note of thaks from our Moira Boag for thoughts and gifts after her recent operation.   She's doing well.

KNITTING FOR AFRICA PROJECT: 

 

Many thanks to all those who have, and who continue to contribute wool, money and time to this project. 

 

Knitting for HIV Babies

As you must be aware, given the amount of bags brought to and taken from the church on a Sunday, that the project of knitting tops & blankets for babies born with HIV is still going strong.
 
To date, the number of tops delivered for distribution is 2572 with more ready to go.
 
This grand total has been achieved not only through the ladies of our own congregation but also from  churches in Calderbank, Chapelhall & Wishaw.  There have so been donations via Margaret Muir, the Guild Convenor, from Guilds throughout the area.
 
Many thanks go to all who have contributed their time & effort to this project.  Many thanks also to those who have donated wool and given monetary donations to allow us to purchase wool for the knitters.
 
This is an ongoing project and all the knitted goods are gratefully received so, like they say on Strictly, "Keep Knitting"
