Knitting group urges Exmouth residents to ‘open hearts’ to others
PUBLISHED: 10:00 18 March 2016
People are being urged to ‘open their hearts’ to those less fortunate than themselves by donating wool or buttons to an Exmouth knitting group.
The Volunteer Matters group has been running since 2009 and has sent materials to people in need in Moldova and Syria.
Members meet every Thursday morning, between 10am and noon at Dening Court in Withycombe.
All materials go towards the Christian Response to Eastern Europe charity.
Organiser Sandra Witts, who set up the group with her husband Howard, said: “This is a chance for people in Exmouth to donate to those who are in desperation.
“We once saw a boy in Bosnia who was wearing a pair of shoes that were ten sizes too big and those shoes had to be worn by the whole family.”
For more information, contact Sandra or Howard on 01395 273692.
