Merewether Mothers Union Knitters

Merewether Mothers Union  have been busy during the COVID 19  lockdown, and completed 12 woollen rugs for Jenny’s Place .

The photo shows some of the knitters with the Reverend Sally Malfroy, who Blessed the rugs outside St. Augustine’s Church. She prayed especially for those who would receive them, that they would find warmth and comfort from them .

Jenny’s Place is a specialist, residential, and support  centre  for women and children experiencing Domestic and Family Violence or Homelessness in the Newcastle Area . There they receive, shelter,  referral to counselling,  Family Support and Legal Advice.

On arrival the women are given a bright knitted rug, made from woollen squares; when they leave they can take the rug home.
