Our new winter challenges were launched at the start of December, they are not obligatory just a few ideas if people need them!
The Sun on Sunday appeal has been fantastic, over 500 blankets have arrived at Operation Orphan and they are still coming in!

We recently worked together with the Sun on Sunday and Operation Orphan to launch a campaign for people to knit single bed size blankets for Operation Orphan's Keep a Child Warm appeal.
The blankets will go to vulnerable children both at home and overseas to give them warmth and comfort over the cold winter ahead

Operation Christmas Child Barton upon Humber SMASHED the record for the teddies - final count was 16.,099 bears! The World Record people came out to verify the numbers and it will be another month or two when it is ratified, but DIDN'T THEY DO WELL!
Thanks to a lot of Loving Hands members for joining in!

Julia from OCC Barton on Humber updated the total on Friday 19th August -
We have only got 30 days of the Challenge left... where did the time go!!!!
Our current total has now reached a fantastic 8351 bears ..... our Teddy Bears' Picnic is going to be huge!
Please keep knitting, crocheting and spreading the word if you are able, the finish line is in sight. Come on Team Teddy, we can do it! Xx
They have already beaten last year's total - let's see if we can all help them reach the record!

We have been lucky enough to receive 3 large sacks of yarn this week to share amongst our members so we can make sure the needles and hooks stay busy.
A big thank you to Sheila in Bristol for the very welcome donation!
We also had a lovely thank you letter from the Nottingham QMC Neonatal unit thank us for the tiny baby and angel baby items like the little fabric wraps in the photo.
Another thank you from the RSPCA at West Hatch for crochet nest that they use in the fledgling ward, don't the birds look snug?
