LATEST DEVELOPMENTS WITH INTER CARE
The Committee have agreed with the Chairman's request to re-instate the Chairman's Charity.
Most of you will have realised that Inter Care is very close to my heart, since I feel that the work they have been doing since 1974 has been so valuable, but maybe unknown to so many people.
Therefore I have nominated Inter Care to be our charity, and hopefully I will have the support of the members of Cosby Quilters.
The response to the quilt appeal has been phenomenal....the quilts are still appearing, as if by magic.
So, it has been all the more rewarding to hear of the latest developments from Inter Care.
A member of their staff is visiting Malawi in three weeks time and taking some of our quilts.
Not only that, but the camera crew from the BBC programme Inside Out, are accompanying her (also with a stash of quilts) - and they are all packed up and ready to go.
Diane Hardy of Inter Care is hoping that the handing over of our quilts will be televised, but of course they have no control over this. At the moment we do not have a date for this programme, but I will try to get more precise information.
Well, what do you think?
Its all down to you industrious ladies of Cosby Quilters, Village Quilters, Countesthorpe Piecemakers, and many people who don't belong to any of the above groups.
A BIG THANK YOU FROM ME AND YOUR COMMITTEE
A BIG THANK YOU FROM INTER CARE
THE MANY RECIPIENTS IN REMOTE PARTS OF AFRICA
PS I have heard tell that some ladies have made as many as 15 quilts. Can this be true?
Who are they, please reveal yourselves.....
