25 Years of VIEW in Bendigo

The women of VIEW in Zone VC 01/02 took knitting to new levels recently when
many of them donated thousands of hours to knit woollen squares that were
later sewn into rugs or cushion covers for use in the three Learning for
Life Centres in the Zone. Although the expertise of the work and the beauty
of the finished products were exceptional, the kindness of the women who
knitted and constructed the finished products was heart warming and left me
quite over-awed. In a more literal sense these goods will bring comfort and
warmth to the children we serve.
At our February meeting, we rewarded ourselves with a special cake congratulating all the workers who did Christmas wrapping at Marketplace and Lansell Plaza Shopping Centres in Bendigo.
We raised the magnificent sum of $4,270.30
