More woollen sin­glets sought

Matamata Chronicle - - News/opinion -

Two weeks ago it was re­ported in the Mata­mata Chron­i­cle that Robyn Gor­don was try­ing to find a knit­ting group.

To her de­light she has not only found one but had bags of knit­ting do­nated to her to send off to Christchurch.

Her aim was to knit socks, sing- lets, booties and hats for chil­dren in Christchurch who have been left with noth­ing. With win­ter ap­proach­ing she said there were many chil­dren who would need the ex­tra warmth.

Be­fore all the goods are sent to Christchurch, Ms Gor­don is hop­ing to get ex­tra sin­glets.

‘‘All I’m ask­ing for is any­one around Mata­mata who can knit, to knit just one chil­dren’s woollen sin­glet. If ev­ery­one who can knit made one, we would help a lot of chil­dren.’’

If you are able to knit a sin­glet, or have some goods to do­nate, con­tact Ms Gor­don on 888 1463.
