Craft Group
Our craft Group makes quilts for people in need. The above photo was taken in June 2019 when Robyn took 15 quilts up to Sutherland Shire Family Services in Jannali to be given to abused families and families in need. A further four quilts were delivered a few days later.

Some of the ladies in our craft group and their friends have been active in these COVID-19 times. In September 2020, 5 beautiful quilts, 8 woollen blankets, 30 teddies, 25 beanies, 2 scarves and 3 hoodies were donated to Sutherland Shire Family Services in Jannali. These items were gratefully received and will go to families in need.
