Knitting for good
Posted on September 29, 2018 by Iosis
For over 10 years the knitting group at Bupa Erin Park retirement village has supported local charities and last month it was Iosis’s turn to benefit from their work. The group produced a wonderful array of beanies, booties, cardigans and jumpers for the children of our Iosis families. Vera and Pat are two of the founding members of the group who live in the retirement village at Erin Park. Both are very keen knitters who like to keep busy and knitting for charities like Iosis provides a real purpose to their productivity. “We love knitting and knowing that it is going to families that need support is very satisfying,” says Vera.
The group also runs a small stall selling their garments at the Village and they very generously donated proceeds from the stall to Iosis along with donations of children’s clothing from relatives and other residents.
