Hats off to WI’s caring knitters

Posted onPosted on 1st Dec

Members of Mansfield Marians WI have created a Christmas tree out of green woolly hats, which will help homeless people this winter.

The hats have been knitted and crocheted with green wool, and all have a large pompom to denote baubles on a tree.

The ‘tree’ will be on display in the Rushley pub, Mansfield, throughout December.

The hats will then be donated to The Beacon Project for distribution to its homeless clients

WI members made the hats from various shades and types of wool, and those who do not knit or crochet provided the pompoms.

Mansfield Marians WI is a small and friendly group with a wide age range. All women are invited to go to meetings for fun, friendship, crafts, and talks.

Meetings are held on the third Thursday of every month in the Function Room at the Rushley pub, at 7.30pm.
