Knitting for Botswana

Written by Charleston Academy on . Posted in Important Announcements

Last year the Botswana 2012 Team delivered handmade knitted Baby Outfits to the Maternity Hospital in Palapye.

Pictured here are Mr Seloke (Art) and Ms Didimalang (Biology) with a selection of the knitted outfits. These will be taken to Palapye on their return journey with Miss Sutherland and Ms Sutherland.

A special thank you to Grace MacKenzie (Support for Learning) for her huge contribution of jumpers, hats and blankets.

A “Knitting for Botswana Babies Group 2014” has started knitting already.

Staff and Pupils keen to participate have been asked to bring along double knitting yarn – ( not white or pastel colours ) and 5mm or 4.5mm knitting needles.

For any parents who would like to contribute the knitting patterns are available to download HERE.

Any donations of wool or needles would also be gratefully received.
