A beautiful handmade patchwork quilt was presented to a children’s hospice on Tuesday to help it raise funds.
Members of social group Redbridge University of the Third Age (U3A) sewed the quilt themselves for Haven House Children’s Hospice, in Woodford Green.
They handed it to hospice representatives at the charity’s annual general meeting at the Redbridge Institute, in Gaysham Avenue, Gants Hill.
Member Herbert Simons said: “We’re donating it to them so it can be used as a raffle prize at their summer fair. Hopefully it will raise as much money as possible.”
Cllr Felicity Banks, the Mayor of Redbridge, attended the meeting where a consultant clinical psychologist, Steven Davis, gave a talk.
