A little late but none the less sincere❤️On this Thank You Thursday....💙Last week our shelf was empty but thanks to Natures Organics we now have stock of kids wash & bubble bath.💙Another empty shelf has been restocked by Pinchapoo, 200 shampoo & 200 conditioner, thank you.💙Kogo goodies are always a big hit with our volunteers, we love being able to include beautiful knitted items for the families we help. From our volunteers to yours we say thanks.💙Where would we be without our crafty people, they spend hours at home sewing, knitting, crocheting & more... One of these crafty knitters is 94 years old & sent a bag of gorgeous knitted jumpers, so special.💙Thank you Dot & June who donated nappies, wipes & other baby items, these are always much appreciated. Thank you to the many donors that dropped off items this week, in particular the donor of the huge bag of brand new clothing items, socks, hats etc... there was a lot of excitement unpacking that bag.💙 💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙 ...
