Malton gets quilting for critically-ill children
8:45am Monday 17th March 2014 in News
A Malton group held a special workshop at the weekend to make quilts for critically-ill children.
The Malton Country Quilters held a session at the Saville Steet Methodist Church in the town where they heard from nurse Julie Hatton about the work of Linus - a charity that provides quilts and blankets for critically-ill children and babies in hospitals.
Member Gloria Fox mentioned the issue to her husband, Malton butcher Derek Fox, and she also gave a talk to Malton and Norton Rotary Club, of which her husband is a member.
As a result, the Rotarians agreed to help the group with money to buy materials for the workshop and the project.
Workshop organiser Mandy Knaggs said: "We aimed to make 20 quilts of various sizes for those children and babies who need them and it has been a very worthwhile day.
"We are very grateful to the Rotary Club for sponsoring us to help this project."
