We offered her a Woolly Hug and are so glad that she has accepted. There will be love in every stitch, and we hope it will be a real tribute to her wonderful DH.

Please will you help us? We shall need crocheters, knitters and donors (of funds or wool)

Thank you all so much. We are all so very touched by your kindness. It is almost seven weeks now since he was killed. It took the police five weeks to find his mobile phone in the wreakage. We are beyond devastated.
