RENISHAW: Knitting Nannies aid troops and babies

Women connected with St Matthew’s Church, Renishaw, known as the ‘Knitting Nannies’ have sent over 200 blankets to the troops in Afghanistan and over 100 jumpers for the ‘fish and chip’ babies.

An orphanage in Africa is now being supported by these knitters.

The recent coffee morning raised £40 for Christian Aid.
