Last meeting of the summer term

Last Wednesday we presented the prizes from our show and learnt we have collected just over £2700 for the Admiral Nurses charity. These wonderful people support the carers of those with alzheimers and dementia. Quite a few people connected with the charity including one of the nurses came to our show. Our raffle quilt raised more than £1300 of this and it went to a non quilter who came back specially for the draw at the end and was virtually in tears when her ticket came out of the packed drum.

Our 2011 show was in support of the Pilgrims' Hospice who had greatly helped Helen Appleby, one of our members. At this show we displayed Helen's last quilt top quilted and finished by Vanessa. At our meeting we decided to give it to the hospice for fundraising or to use as they think fit.
