The asylum seekers have very much appreciated these personal items and value them and feel so welcomed by them.
Thank you all so much. I do look forward to your continued support. We have around 70 asylum seekers arriving each year from around 11 countries and speaking up to 15 different languages. Their journeys have been very, very long, very hard and dangerous. What a welcome you have helped to give them.
Very best wishes
Your gifts will go to Syrian and Iraqi refugee families in Athens.
One of your newsletters was also in the package, and it seems that between you, you do a lot of really amazing work. It’s good to see.
Thank you once again,
Thank you all so much.

They were fabulous and very much appreciated.
All the muffs have been allocated to the children most in need of something to keep their hands occupied!
With many more asking if they could have one and that was before the cold weather hit us! Ha Ha
So we have a waiting list for them (so if you get anymore in?)
The Teddies are finding new and deserving homes. Comforting anxious children, Even one of the big year 10 boys has one on him at all times!
We are planning to use the pompoms to make a new rug, we think.
Please pass on our heartfelt thanks to all your kind members who have so tirelessly given up their time, energy and wool to knit for us.
We have made a thank card to send to you all, if you could just kindly send me your address I will get it in the post.
We also have some doll and toy knitting patterns for you (donated to the craft fair) if they would be of any use to any of your members?
We also seem to be stirring an interest in knitting with the children so I am going to try to teach them in craft club! Wish me luck!
