Fabulous squares…we are going to start making cushions for the elderly in hospital that are far from family. Most of the hospitals are based in Algiers so it is quite common for patients to be receiving treatment away from the areas in which they live. The cushions will have knitted/crochet squares to the front and fabric to the back. These squares are just perfect!

We have been very busy this last few weeks making preparations for our Winter appeal. As always, during the coldest months we will be giving blankets and warm clothing to those most in need. If you are in the UK and wish to donate clothing or other items we need to receive your donations by the end of November to ensure that they reach Algiers in time for when they are needed most. No donation is ever too small….a pair of gloves, a hat or a pair of socks makes the world of difference to someone who is cold with no way of getting warm.

WARM FOR WINTER APPEAL-page-001

Right now I am busy stitching squares together to make multi coloured wearable blankets! I hope you too have a fun, craft filled October planned!
