I would appreciate the opportunity to thank readers for their generous response to our appeals for unused balls of knitting wool.
We have collected enough wool to produce more than 1,700 items of knitwear for disadvantaged people on Tyneside.
In addition to other groups, Age UK in Whitley Bay has an army of knitters working on this project and their weekly output is truly impressive.
The next distribution of knitwear to approved families will take place over the second May bank holiday weekend.
Distribution of children’s winter clothing in North Tyneside will resume on October 1.
