For over 50 years, the dedicated ladies in Blaenafon, have knitted tirelessly in response to crises, (such as the 2004Tsunami) worldwide. And, of course, for a number of years, they have willingly and generously supported the work of HHI in Zambia.
So, it was with gratitude, tinged with sadness, that one chilly morning in December we collected more wonderful items of knitwear from Park Street Methodist Church. Why sad? Well, as Park Street Church closed its doors with a special celebration service on Monday December 12th, the Dorcas League decided that they, too, would call it a day.
However, in keeping with the Dorcas ethos and in true HHI supporter fashion, the ladies have decided that they will continue to knit for the needy and vulnerable people we work with in Zambia! We are delighted and look forward to continuing our special relationship with these very special ladies! Thank you!
