 'Fish & Chip' Jumpers & Hats - Photo Gallery

'Fish & Chip' Jumper/Hat Knitting Pattern
Newly born babies of Africa, many suffering from Aids, are called 'Fish & Chip' babies because they leave hospital wrapped in newspapers for warmth.
To replace the newspapers, we are asking for those of you who can knit, to make small woollen jumpers and hats, all to be sent out directly to parts of Kenya, Uganda and South Africa.
If you would like to contribute to the knitted garments, the necessary instructions and patterns can be downloaded.

THIS PROJECT CLOSED ON 31ST JANUARY 2013

A display of the 'Fish & Chip' jumpers and hats was held in Church on Sunday 27th January 2013 showing the amazing total of 216 garments that have been knitted to date. Kath Coope, who organised the project sends her sincere thanks to all those who have taken part. A tremendous effort !
At the end of January, the garments which were all blessed by our Parish Priest, Revd. Maureen Hobbs, will be delivered to the contact in the UK for delivery direct to the hospitals in Africa.
Thank you...
And did you knit !!!! At the closing date on 31st January 2013, a staggering total of 306 garments have been made, comprising 148 jumpers and 158 hats.
A massive 'Thank You' from Kath Coope to all of you who have given your time (and wool!).
