Local knitters make a differrence

Heart-warming new photographs from Germany have arrived showing displaced Syrian refugee children now based in Europe wearing items lovingly made by local knitters, crocheters and craftspeople.
A large number of Mid North Coast residents responded to the call to create warm, cozy items, including the Kendall Craft Group, who supported the Knitting the Future community arts project last year.
Community members moved to help asylum seekers can be involved in the next MNC Refugee Support Group fundraising event on Saturday April 16, 2016.
There will be a market at the Wauchope Arts Hall from 3pm selling preloved items and afternoon tea.
Live music will feature Styx 'n Stonz.
Anyone can donate items in good condition- please call Krissa to arrange 0429 854 733.
A shared meal will follow the market and everyone is welcome to bring a plate of food to share.
After the meal there will be an evening screening of the film Stormy Waters, which reviews the history of migration to Australia and the treatment of asylum seekers today, and asks “is there a better way?".

For more information on the fundraiser contact Krissa Wilkinson on 0429 854 733.
To be part of stage 2 of the MNCoast Refugee Support Group's knitting project please contact Mavis Barnes on 6559 4339.
