We received some amazing capes from Anne and her amazing group of sewers, we are so grateful to all of them. This is what Anne had to say:
I started a sewing group 2 years ago because our centre was under threat of closure - took a loooooooooooooong time to get it going but here we are today: 35 members, good supporters, fantastic funding, lots of great resources and bags of enthusiasm. Age range is wide but all willing to share skills and ideas. We just featured on the BBC website, a visit from the High Sheriff of Cheshire and an upcoming piece in the Cheshire Life magazine - all very exciting. We encourage our members to nominate charitable projects and your cape project was well received. From personal experience I know that a simply made cape can make a child feel so special, invincible even.
On a personal note, I lived in SA for 12 years - some of the best years of my life! The thought of the capes going to SA made me feel good.
