Hat’s the way

Knit­ting for Malawi

Wishaw Press - - FRONT PAGE - Michael Tem­lett

Kind pri­mary pupils teamed up with top knit­ters to sup­port a Malawi school.

Pupils at Kirk O’Shotts have helped out St Matthew’s nurs­ery in Malawi for the last five years through fundrais­ing and pro­jects, in­clud­ing send­ing out lit­er­acy and nu­mer­acy re­sources.

Now the Sals­burgh pri­mary have teamed up with Mvumo Pri­mary which is the poor­est school in the re­gion of Mu­lanje.

Through a Just Giv­ing page, money has been raised to send to the school and the Friends of Kirk O’Shotts group have been knit­ting pon­chos and beanie hats for the chil­dren in Malawi.

Ear­lier this year, £575 was raised to build a class­room for Mvumo Pri­mary so pupils in the up­per pri­mary can at­tend lessons to com­plete their pri­mary ed­u­ca­tion.

The young­sters joined Joyce Cowrie and Ish­bel Keir who knit­ted for the Wishaw Gen­eral neo-natal unit as they cel­e­brated their fundrais­ing ef­forts.
