APPEAL: Unwanted wool will be useful

I am once again writing to ask the kind readers of the Morpeth Herald to check out their cupboards and lofts to see if they have any spare wool or buttons.

Even if you have started to knit but have not had time to complete the item we can still use the wool.

I am collecting wool and buttons as a volunteer of Samaritan’s Purse’s Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Appeal.

It is such a delight to see the film of the children wearing their knitted hats, scarves and mittens with the biggest smile you can imagine. They are so happy to receive this special gift.

We are also looking for knitters to knit some hats, scarves and mittens. You can contact me on 01670 510743.
