Donations Handed Over

In October 2o1o, I promoted my yearly drive for donations to this wonderful cause. Two lovely and generous quilters sent along 3 blankets and so today hubby and I delivered all 12 blankets to the John Hunter Children's Hospital here in Newcastle (New South Wales- Australia). This hospital is a regional one which covers an area the size of Britain (that's huge) and sadly the neo-natal unit needed 19 blankets in 2o1o.
I know the offering of these BLaNkEtS of LoVe makes a difference to bereaving families and so I urge anyone interested in donating a tiny blanket to contact me anytime in the future. I am so grateful for the opportunity to help in this manner and it definitely is a "FeeL GooD" programme.

This "Angel" can now be proudly displayed on the blogs of the two wonderful quilters Joyce and Crafty Pug.

ThAnK YoU both ... for your generosity!

This unit has 41 beds
and over 90 nursing staff.

This beautiful sculpture
adorns the waiting area.

Handing over the BLaNkEtS to Maree -Unit Supervisor.

I have had personal experience of how treasured these Wee Quilts are to the parents.

This is lovely Cheryll, to bring even the smallest bit of comfort to a family who has suffered the tragic loss of a child is a special thing to do. If I am able to in 2011 I will help too, could you perhaps email me the details of sizes and any specific requirements.

I think you and the girls have done fantastically well.
