Quilts and mittens on their way to hospital

Members of the Country Women’s Association’s Woy Woy branch have been keeping busy in lockdown by making masks for school children and creativity bags for Coast Shelter and their latest project involves needles, patience and a lot of fabric!

This delivery consists of 22 quilts, 33 bereavement bags and 10 pairs of knitted mittens for Elsie’s Retreat Project and Gosford Hospital.

Branch president, Jane Bowtell, said CWA Woy Woy celebrates turning 90 next year and that she couldn’t be prouder of all members and what each and every one of them brings to the branch.

“Without them it would not be the successful well-regarded branch it is today,” she said.

“Whilst lockdown has meant we cannot meet at the hall or have market stalls we can still rally when the community asks for help, just as our forebears did when the branch opened in 1932.”
