hats for homelessA number of girls have been busy over the last few weeks with their needles, crocheting 45 warm hats to give to those in need at a local homeless shelter.

The girls - Elisabeth and Rose (pictured left), Amena, Erica, Georgia, Shubha, Tegen and Uyi (all from UV Form) and Anna and Jemima (UVI Form), have been creating the brightly coloured, warm woolly hats in the Needlecraft Club as part of the volunteering aspect of their Duke of Edinburgh's Award.  The hats will be delivered to the Doorways Charity Homeless Shelter in Chippenham next week to be handed out to homeless people, as the weather is now turning colder. 

These and more girls are now making blankets for the Project Linus Charity. (Project Linus UK is a volunteer organisation which aims to provide a sense of security and comfort to sick and traumatised babies, children and teenagers through the provision of new home-made patchwork quilts and knitted/crocheted blankets).

We hope that both the hats and blankets provide some warmth and comfort to those who receive them.
