One thing leads to another

The Tatura Guardian - - News -

When Tina Clarke from the Pres­by­te­rian Fel­low­ship Group ac­cepted an invitation from All Saints Guild pres­i­dent Mar­garet Davies to speak about or­phaned chil­dren in Malawi, Nyasa­land and Mozam­bique, she could not have imag­ined what the visit would lead to, Guild mem­ber Phyll Bram­ley said last week.

‘‘Tina has been or­gan­is­ing the col­lec­tion of knit­ted chil­dren’s clothes and bed­ding to be sent over­seas to help th­ese im­pov­er­ished chil­dren,’’ Mrs Bram­ley said.

‘‘Such items have been do­nated by the Flexi Group in Shep­par­ton, along with items made by Tina and the Tatura Pres­by­te­rian Fel­low­ship Group.’’

Mrs Bram­ley said Tina ‘‘re­ceived a lovely sur­prise’’ when a Mer­rigum res­i­dent, who wishes to re­main anony­mous, read the ar­ti­cle of her visit to the Angli­can Guild and re­alised she could as­sist with the ap­peal.

‘‘An avid knit­ter, the woman do­nated more than 90 pairs of baby’s booties and bon­nets, all beau­ti­fully hand-knit­ted over a pe­riod of time,’’ she said.

‘‘A spe­cial thanks to both women, who clearly showed us the true mean­ing of Christ­mas and giv­ing.’’
