Yesterday a bunch of the Patch girls clustered around at Port Denison.
The Blessing of the Fleet was happening in the marina,
the sun was shining and there were plenty of cheerful faces cruising the market stalls.
We've been working throughout the past year making sure we had enough quilts
to give out to this year's campers and with just a bit of tweaking we made it.
18 lovely bright quilts for boys and girls between the ages of three and 16
all of whom have had their lives affected by cancer.
Some of these kids are sick themselves
and some have a brother or sister who
requires treatment and hospitalisation.
What a great bunch of kids they are and we all got a huge buzz seeing them opening their new quilts.
I was a delighted to receive on behalf of The Patch a special Certificate of Thanks
from these handsome young men.
Thanks to all the members who made quilts, helped sort, count and label them, turned up to help with the presentation, take the photos and
understood all about the tweaking when things have to be rearranged.
