More than 40 knitted teddies donated to Home-Start charity

Knitted teddys

More than 40 knitted teddies have been donated to the Home-Start charity in Gainsborough from a group of our customers.


Three bags of teddies were given to Home-Start in Gainsborough on Wednesday 23 November. The teddies will be given to young vulnerable children this Christmas.


The 40 teddies were knitted by our Hilda Stainton from Blyton and Rae Everett and Jean Bates both from Market Rasen.


Vicky Hearn, the Administrator at Home-Start in Gainsborough, said: “We would like to thank the wonderful ladies for their generous donation of the knitted teddies. These will be offered to families who access Home-Start services between now and Christmas. I am sure they will go to good homes and bring some happiness to many children.”


Rae Everett from Market Rasen knitted 19 of the teddies and said: “I’m used to knitting dog blankets so it was nice to have something different to work on. The style of the teddies was quite simple and after a while I had a bag full. The teddies are great to give young vulnerable people to give them something to hold onto. Knitting keeps me busy and I can feel like I’m achieving something even if I’m sat in front of the TV.


“The next project is knitting hats and scarfs for children and I’m looking forward to taking on this next challenge. I’m grateful that the teddies will go to a place where they will be needed and cared for.”
