The speaker at our October meeting was Elaine Dew from Refugee Aid From Taunton (RAFT). Twice now, some of our members have volunteered at the charity to help sort the many donated items.
We presented a cot blanket to Elaine which members had produced in memory of Christine Irwin by putting together squares knitted by Chris and using her wool to complete more squares to complete it and to add some finishing touches.
