A quilt made in a charity’s colours was raffled off to raise money.
Stitchers The Poppy Patchers hosted Quilts in the Garden for the second year running last Sunday. It took place at the back of Poppy Crafts, Victoria Street, Sheerness, to support the Harmony Therapy Trust.
As well as the green and pink quilt, there was a display of more of the group’s work, and the members had made cakes for visitors to enjoy.
There was also a tombola and crafts for sale and altogether it raised £240 for the trust, the Times Guardian’s Charity of the Year. It provides free treatments to people with serious illnesses.
The showcase was organised by Denise Dickson, who runs Poppy Crafts and used to be the treasurer for Harmony.
Harmony founder Dawn Cockburn said: “It all looked absolutely marvellous – it was even bigger and better than last year. I’m just overwhelmed by the amount of care, love and effort which went into it.
"I would like to say a big, big thank you to all of the Poppy Patchers – it was so lovely and they really deserve praise. I can’t thank them enough.”
Last week an online auction was also held for the trust, organised by therapist Sarah Coombes, and that raised £440.
