Calling all Knitters – Blankets of Hope are back!

You may remember last summer we presented an amazing 5 blankets to the Girls Club Cork which they gave to children as comforters as they undergo chemo. This charity provides help in many ways to  anyone who is undergoing chemo.

This year we are hoping to help more children and so our 2nd to 6th class  will be taking part in the "blankets of hope" programme where each child will be taught to knit, and then the square sewn into a larger blanket.

We are looking for volunteers to help get the kids started during school. We are hoping to start on Friday September 25th 2015. If you are available to come into the school and help the kids please contact Grace (Mamaí le Eva, Ellen and Gráinne Ní Chrualaíoch) 087 9788132 (all you need to be able to do is plain stitch – no fancy stuff required !!)
