18/02/2015 - Many sacks of knitting and stitching sent with the International Aid Trust
Les and Joan Potter from the International Aid Trust came along to the collect the waiting sacks of knitting from the Wool Loft at the end of the Open Day on Tuesday 17th. They came with a large estate car and trailer and many willing hands managed to fit the huge number of sacks in. They were all taken to the Warehouse in Great Yarmouth where volunteers pack them into boxes before they continue their journey to many needy areas of the world. Thanks to everyone who contributed. Les and Joan are overwhelmed with the quantity and the quality of everything they receive.
