Woolly thinking ishelping babies
A knitting group at Blantyre Old Parish Church is supporting staff engaged in international development work at the University of Strathclyde.
Headed by Ella Andrew of Sycamore Grove, Blantyre, the group knits jumpers, cardigans and blankets for babies which it passes to Strathclyde’s Engineering for Development initiative, which sees staff and students working on various projects across the world, including Asia and Africa.
Ms Andrew said: “The knitting group has been going for many years and has long been associated with charitable work in Malawi.
“We’re happy to do what we can for children in developing countries to help ensure they are well cared for.”
Christine Donald, of Strathclyde Engineering for Development, said: “We’d like to express our sincere thanks to the wonderful knitters at Blantyre Old Church.
“We work in some of the poorest and most marginalised communities in India, Africa and Nepal and these small garments and blankets are so needed and so welcome.”
