Woonona Trefoil Guild situated in the northern suburb of Wollongong, New South Wales, Australia, numbers ten (10) members only. When they were asked to support World Vision Australia, whose mission is to transform the lives of disadvantaged and at-risk children and communities, the Guild members decided to participate and they started with knitting jumpers for overseas babies. The jumpers were going to World Vision for distribution.
Now they are going to an organisation known as "Mission without Borders" an aid group who concentrated its efforts on helping the disadvantages and poor families in Armenia, Romania and the Ukraine in Eastern Europe. So far they have handed over 800 jumpers, some with bonnets and booties and ten knitted or crocheted blankets.
They also support the Ronald McDonald House at Westmead Children’s Hospital with toiletry and dental items, craft items for children, books and kitchen goodies e.g. cake mixes and tin fruits etc. 30 dolls shawls and 10 crocheted comfort blankets and baby shawls. Earlier on they knitted and crocheted 36 woollen blankets for every bed in the "Wangi House", the Brownie Cottage at Kum Ba Yah Mount Keira Girl Guide Camp, near Wollongong.
Not bad for ten members. !!!!!!!!!!!!!
