CAN YOU HELP?
WANTED – 2nd HAND DOLLS OF ANY SIZE FROM
“TEENAGE BARBIE” TO 20 INCH “BABY” OR “GIRL” DOLLS.
The Kendal Branch of “International Aid Trust” are a group who knit or sew to dress 2nd hand dolls which have previously been washed and hair shampooed. The dolls are dressed with vest, pants and three sets of clothes which are then packed into a draw string material “shoe bag” ready to bring pleasure to little girls in Eastern Europe.
The group also recycle soft toys, knit/crochet squares to make up into blankets, gloves mittens, hats, scarves, jumpers and matinee jackets etc. for babies, children and adults. The smallest items are put into “shoe boxes.” Every thing that has been produced is sent to Eastern Europe all year round not just at Christmas.
If you have any dolls, soft toys, odd balls of wool, pieces of material which the group could recycle for this cause please bring it along to any Heart Concern meeting or perhaps you might like to knit or sew at home yourself or require more information please contact: Carole Ellis on 01524 733847.
