Donations for Angels come from far and wide around Australia. Where possible we ask that they be sent to us, or dropped to a local branch. But sometimes, by prior arrangement, an Angels volunteer will give their time (& petrol money) to collect items for us. This was the case when the lovely Pauline from Knit4Charities in Hervey Bay called our SE QLD Branch a few weeks ago. We had been waiting for the call so we took the family for a weekend in Hervey Bay to collect the items and return them to our SE QLD Branch.
Now Pauline said she had 'a lot' of items, and as soon as I saw the huge pile of boxes I decided she meant to say 'A LOT!' but hubby was pretty sure she meant 'bring a trailer'!
I can't wait to tell you about Pauline and her generous friends, and show you what they have been creating for us! The boxes are waiting to be sorted & photographed at our SE QLD branch in the next couple of days. So stay tuned!
PS Thanks to Hubby Angel for packing & repacking (when Pauline kept bringing out more boxes!), packing again, squeezing more things in, driving and unloading! x
