Beacon Cast-Offs celebrates it’s first birthday!

23 August 2018

During our break Beacon Cast-Offs, our knitting and crochet group celebrated their first birthday in style!  There was a lovely caterpillar birthday cake (provided by Janis) and lots of other goodies. Co-ordinated by Susan Hartley and helped by Janis Armstrong, Kate Slater and Sue Gladman the Cast-Offs plan to meet on a monthly basis in addition to our group running at the Monday morning Beacon Wellbeing Cafe.

The Cast-Offs have joined forces with Hookers and Clickers (do it for charity) a local group who adopt a different charity every four months. We have embarked on making items for various charities and for the next four months are making cot size and bed size blankets, baby hats and mittens and hats, scarves and mittens for children up to teenage. These items will be sent to an orphanage in the Ukraine for ‘Orphan Smiles’.

Our next get-together takes place between 10am and 3pm in the Music Room here at MBC on Saturday 22 September. If anyone is interested in helping us in our endeavors, please speak to Janis or Kate, look either group up on Facebook or just turn up on the day.
