Ti­ny tuque knit­ters raise big bucks


A col­lec­tion of hand-knit ti­ny tuques al­lo­wed a group of re­si­dents from Le Fé­lix —HATS re­ti­re­ment home in Vau­dreuil-Do­rion to do­nate more than $2,100 to the Vau­dreuil-Soulanges Pal­lia­tive Care Re­si­dence Foun­da­tion ear­lier this month. The funds help the foun­da­tion that is tas­ked with rai­sing more than $1.4 M an­nual­ly to help the Hud­son pal­lia­tive care home conti­nue of­fe­ring its end-of-life care free to re­si­dents of the 23 Vau­dreuil-Soulanges mu­ni­ci­pa­li­ties. More than 30 Le Fe­lix vo­lun­teers knit­ted scores of the co­lour­ful mini tuques - a quin­tes­sen­tial Ca­na­dian win­ter ac­ces­so­ry - that were in turn sold to raise mo­ney for the pal­lia­tive home. The de­light­ful­ly ti­ny hats can be used as Ch­rist­mas or­na­ments, wine bot­tle top­pers, key chains, or as fun ho­li­day de­co­ra­tions. VSPCR Com­mu­ni­ty Events Coor­di­na­tor Ma­de­leine Langlois said eve­ryone at the Hud­son home en­joyed mee­ting the mo­ti­va­ted vo­lun­teers from the Vau­dreuil-Do­rion se­nior’s re­si­dence. “This kind of com­mu­ni­ty ef­fort is what we love. We look for­ward to wor­king with other groups in a si­mi­lar way,” she said.
