Children from St Matthew’s Knitting Club attended a community event at Hope Church to knit squares for a blanket.
This blanket will be raffled locally and the money raised from the sale used to support Syrian refugees.
The girls really enjoyed contributing to this project; these are some of their comments:

I really enjoyed the Big Knit. I had a very nice time knitting and I had a very nice experience. I would really, really love to come again, thank you so much.
The reason why I like knitting was because I have experienced many things and other talented women. Another reason why I love knitting is that you get to help other people as well.
