Sharing the Warmth at Japara Sandhurst

In early July, Kathy Rodis from the RDNS (Royal District Nursing Service) Homeless persons program was invited to a special morning tea, where she was presented with six hand-knitted blankets. Each blanket is 6 feet long, and combined, took four months to complete. The blankets were made by Sandhurst residents by sewing strips together. At the time of writing, an additional three blankets have been completed, with an annual date made in May for a blanket handover morning tea.
Congratulations to all at Sandhurst for such a fantastic initiative coming to fruition!
