Today our group, Rockingham Patchwork Group had our Cancer Morning Tea, participating in Australia's Biggest Morning Tea. This event is The Cancer Council's foremost fundraising event and since it was implemented in 1994 has raised over $40 million dollars.
Through our quilt raffle, door entry fee and rolling raffles, we today raised $1,500. We are proud of this achievement and had a lovely day with lots of fun and food shared by members and visitors.
Our group also contributes to dear wee quilts to cover the humicribs at King Edward Memorial Hospital for Women, which is West Australia's premier tertiary maternity and gynaecological hospital. The quilts measure 16" x 24" and just look at this gorgeous little hand-knitted set for some lucky premmie baby!
Debi, above, is Leader of the Pack, always ably assisted by Karen. Tremayne, Debi's grandson turns five tomorrow and Deb has made him this great dinosaur quilt. Happy Birthday, Tremayne and Happy Birthday to Karen for today, too.
After all this fun and frivolity it was off to the Red Cross Blood Bank to give a donation.
Hope your day has been enjoyable, too - best wishes!
