Ruddington Women’s Institute
is appealing for donations of knitting wool – chunky and double knitting – as they are knitting woollen hats to send to the soldiers in Afghanistan via Chilwell Depot. They also require any pieces of fabric suitable to make knee rugs. Pieces of a meter square upwards can be stitched and lined by the W.I. and sent to Hedley Court in Surrey where they work with amputees. Donations can be left at the Parish Council office or contact Mrs E. Bedford on 0115 921 2423.
