Regular readers of this blog when it was hosted by Google’s Blogger will know that I like to donate items I have made to Syria Relief. Most of the items that I knit or crochet, and many things that I sew, go to the charity to help Syrian children.
Along with the things that I make or buy, I collect items from other people: children’s clothes, pens, pencils, exercise books and more. As you may imagine, if I haven’t been to the Syria Relief warehouse for a while, our house can begin to get quite cluttered. Such is the position now so I have arranged to deliver it to the warehouse tomorrow.
I like to sort the items I am taking, in the hope that it helps the volunteers who do the sorting at the warehouse in Openshaw. Following my undertaking that mammoth task last week, the landing of our house has a huge number of bags, all labelled and sorted. The pile extends about 10 feet along the landing and is between 2ft and 3ft high. In addition, there are two boxes, one containing nappies and the other, sanitary protection, on top of the laundry basket and another two boxes in our living room. I hadn’t realised quite how much I had amassed! It’s a bit scary when you see just how much there is. After all, I have to find enough space in my car to transport it!
At this point, I should like to thank the members of the Friendly Elks and the Red Bank knitting groups for contributing so many items for Syria Relief. The cause is one that is close to my heart and I am pleased that others are willing to contribute, also.
