Apologies to our interstate and regional knitters!
As in the past, we will be distributing a knitting kit to get you started for 2018. It is an opportunity to get together with your fellow knitters and also to hear from two very special people who will let you know what they do and also the impact your donations have on the recipients.
This year we are very privileged to hear from:
Danielle Ryan-Gledhill who is Social Service Coordinator for Rural & Regional Victoria for St Kilda Mums. St Kilda Mums is an organisation that rehomes new and pre-loved baby and nursery goods to support Victorian families in need. Danielle receives requests from rural and regional case workers across Victoria and thanks to the support of Victorian Freight Specialists coordinates weekly deliveries for families in need from Gippsland to Mildura.
Margaret Thorpe who is the Clinical Care Manager at Sacred Heart Community Home in St Kilda. Margaret is a most compassionate lady who has created a beautiful aged care haven with residents who have histories of homelessness, drug addiction, exposure to trauma and social isolation often having no contact with family. A staggering 40% of residents are under 64.
