Perran Stitchers complete two quilts for Project Linus

Perran Stitchers were delighted to welcome Jolanda van der Stigchel to their group meeting on the 6th May to present her with two quilts for Project Linus.

Jolanda is the coordinator for Project Linus in Cornwall which is a 100% volunteer non-profit organisation whose aim is to provide love, a sense of security, warmth and comfort to children who are seriously ill, traumatised, or otherwise in need through the gifts of new, homemade, washable blankets and quilts, lovingly created by volunteer makers.

Since April 2000 over 75,000 quilts and blankets have been made and donated to children throughout the UK .

The quilts will be put to good use by a local hospice for a young boy and girl.

Further information about the work of Project Linus may be found on their web site http://www.projectlinusuk.net/ or by ringing Jolanda on 01840 211028
