Soup Pa­trol bol­stered by handy do­na­tion

Weekend Courier - - Opinion It Was Ugly And It Was Unnecessary. -

THE Rockingham Arts and Crafts As­so­ci­a­tion has do­nated $100 to the SOUL Soup Pa­trol to help feed home­less peo­ple in Rockingham.

The as­so­ci­a­tion raised the funds from a cro­chet-mak­ing project af­ter invit­ing the public to knit a square for char­ity.

Pres­i­dent Jacqi Beau­mont said the squares were cro­cheted to­gether to form blan­kets, which were sold at the Cre­ative Crafts gift shop.

Ms Beau­mont said the shop was run by volunteers from the arts and crafts as­so­ci­a­tion who all share a love of craft­ing.

“Soul was cho­sen to re­ceive the funds due to their com­mu­nity in­volve­ment in feed­ing the home­less and their new project Vil­lage Women,” she said.

Rockingham Arts and Crafts As­so­ci­a­tion pres­i­dent Jacqi Beau­mont hands over a cheque to SOUL’s Patty Pow­ell.
