Knitting for Sierra Leone

Since April 2016 Poole Soroptimists have distributed 435 baby hats, 47 blankets, 71 hat & pullover sets, 13 pullovers and 19 pairs of bootees.

The majority of knitted items have Nepal as an end destination though some have gone to the Calais Jungle and others are destined for Sierra Leone.
