Baldwin Living Northside Craft Group
Every Saturday the residents and some guests get together to get creative!
The endless clicking of knitting needles and the happy chitter chatter of the group has become a core activity on our social calendar but has also made a significant contribution to some local charities & organisations.
Craft giveaways have been given to the following Charities between April – November 2016:
Kairos, Cherbourg, ‘139 club’, Blucare , Carinity Care, Salvation Army, Lifeline, Share the Dignity, Hospitals, RSPCA.
This year alone 355 items have been crafted by our dedicated group of residents and over 1500 items in total since the group formed!
Congratulations to you all and thank you for all your hard work and efforts in helping those in the local communities in times of need.
In addition to the craft group the residents here at Northside also gave generously to another charity recently.
As a result of all your donations we were able to create 15 Handbags full of toiletries designed to be given out to women in need over the Christmas period through the charity, Share the Dignity.
Again, this is another example of the kind and caring nature of our community here at the village.
Happy knitting Northside residents!!
