Knit-in warms the heart

Melville Times - - Street Watch -

a com­mu­nity-level push.

The An­nual Char­ity Knit-In wrapped up on April 16 at All Saints’ Col­lege in Bull Creek, bring­ing to a close 12 months of work and re­set­ting the cy­cle.

Co-or­di­na­tor Linda Tre­fry said the 1580 items, a mix of clothes and soft toys, was a record high for the team.

Those cre­ations were do­nated to Angli­care WA, Char­ity Link, the Sal­va­tion Army, The Shopfront, Lit­tle Things for Tiny Tots and St Al­ban’s Angli­can Church at High­gate.

“It’s very ful­fill­ing,” Ms Tre­fry said.

“It’s a lovely feel­ing to be able to help so many peo­ple.”

Do­na­tions were al­ready be­ing ac­cepted for next year.
