Sussex Quilters’ Charity Quilt
Further to the success of the last exhibition in 2015, the Sussex Quilters are once again holding an exhibition on 12th October 2019 at Shoreham Community Centre, Shoreham-By-Sea, West Sussex BN43 5WU. The exhibition will be open between 10.00 and 4.00 with the Charity Raffle being drawn at 3.30. Entrance to the exhibition will cost £2, there is disability access, a café and parking is available on site.
Once again the Sussex Quilters are raising money for the Kent, Sussex and Surrey Air Ambulance Service. The group has designed and made a modern double bed quilt (approx. 90” x 72”). The Air Ambulance has a particular relevance to the group as in 2014 the husband of one of our members was involved in a serious cycle accident on Worthing’s cycle path.
The seriousness of his injuries were such that the Air Ambulance was called to airlift him to St George’s Hospital in London. It was only with the extraordinary care and dedication given by the local ambulance service, the Police and the Air Ambulance service that I am delighted to be able to say that he has since made an excellent recovery. However, his family will be forever indebted to the Air Ambulance Service. The cost of the raffle tickets will be £1
Sussex Quilters’ meet on the first Wednesday of the month, 10.00 – 12.00 midday at Southwick Community Centre. For further information contact Margaret Holden 01273 454971 or Angela Avis 01273 595369
