KNITTERS: Charity seeks spare wool

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.

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 as a volunteer of Samaritan’s Purse annual Operation Christmas Child Shoe Box 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 who would like to knit some hats, scarves and mittens.

You can contact me on 01670 510743 and ask for Tricia.
