End of the line for Knit-Wits
THE Woolsery Knit-Wits have decided to hang up their needles after raising thousands of pounds for Children’s Hospice South West since their inception in 2004.
The group of friends knitted children’s clothes from donated wool and sold the garemnts at craft fairs.
Spokesman Hazel Chapman said the decision to cease trading was a sad one to take.
“We are a good team and have enjoyed our time together, but taking into account ill health, lack of transport and price increases, it has reached a natural conclusion.
“WE would like to pay tribute to everyone who supported us throughout the years, for without them we would never have reached the final total donated of �9,627.”

This total included �411 made in a raffle for a doll’s house made and donated by Mr Norman Waded of Woolsery.
