In-Spire Stitcher

First published in Community news

IN-SPIRE Stitchers, a sewing club in Salisbury, gathered 60 members together who stitched, quilted, embroidered and knitted to donate £1,072 to Wiltshire Young Carers this year.

This group of passionate stitchers meets on the second Wednesday of every month in St George’s Church Hall, Harnham.

Every year the members vote on a worthy cause to donate the proceeds from their activities and for the past two years the Wiltshire Young Carers Service has been chosen. The service provides training and support sessions for children aged 5-25 who look after family members with disabilities or illnesses.

On September 15 and 16, 250 people visited St George’s Hall where an exhibition of quilts and textiles and a hand-made bag tombola was held.

Funding was raised from selling refreshments, a quiz, and a table-top sale.

Chairman of In-Spire Stitchers, Jan Thorne, said: “We’re very pleased to raise funds for such a worthwhile cause.”
