    Big hearted members of The Rotary Club of Ormskirk Clocktower have just made a small donation to a group of local quilters.

    The group approached the Club to ask for some financial support for a new venture they have embarked upon. Linked to the International Charity - The Linus Project - the local group of sewing enthusiasts decided to make quilts for babies and children receiving treatment in Ormskirk Hospital.

    The Quilting group is made up local friends who want to use their skills to bring happiness and offer support to families whose children are being treated locally.

    “It’s often a very stressful time when your son or daughter is ill, so we wanted to show families that the local community care” said Sue Wilson, Clocktower Rotary President.

    “The local quilters have done a fantastic job of making beautiful hand made quilts which will be used on the babies’ cots whilst they are in hospital and taken home with them when they are discharged.”

    The first batch of 50 quilts were delivered to the staff on the neo natal Unit at Ormskirk Hospital were gratefully received recently and the next batch are underway as it is hoped to make at least 100 a year so each baby can be given a hand made quilt.

    If you would like to help with this project, please get in touch via the Rotary Club of Ormskirk Clocktower website and use the contact menu. And the quilting group would appreciate any donations to buy fabric and thread and if you can sew even better: 'many hands make light work' - so get in touch!
