We have been humbled by the generosity of Otago people in response to our request for warm clothes for babies this winter.
As part of their Eucharist assembly this term, students from St Hilda's Anglican School for Girls presented our Fundraising and Marketing Manager with four baskets brimming with warm winter baby clothing for the families we support. Many of the items had been knitted or sewn by the girls and staff - thank you so much for all your amazing effort and generosity!
We received a similarly wonderful response from many individuals around Otago too.
In North Otago, locals have been busy knitting, crocheting and sewing blankets for local babies, with some wonderful results. Each blanket has been made with love and has made a huge difference to parents struggling to keep their babies and children warm this winter.
Thank you all very much!
