It's Been A While......

Handover of the Charity Quilts 2014

Had a visit from Teresa from W&CH Foundation last week, to pick up 41 charity quilts.  She told us a little bit about the recipients, which had some of us in tears.  Makes you think how lucky you are sometimes!

 This quilt above was decided too lovely to be a charity quilt, so Teresa was going to raffle it, and 
would let us know how much it raised.

Ready to be packed into the car. Teresa said that people were waiting in her office after
 trips to Woodpatch, so they could see the quilts as soon as they arrived.

These tiny quilts are to be put on the humidicribs.  They get the mothers to rub it against themselves, so it gets their scent or perfume.  When the nurses feed them, they put this next to themselves, so it smells like 'mum'.
