Knitted Nativities for Care Homes
Groups of people in Malvern have knitted three Nativity sets to give to Care Homes. They are about five or six inches high and were packed into shoe boxes for storage so they can be used from year to year.
Eileen Tomlin, Reader in the parish of Malvern Link with Cowleigh said: “It’s been a real community effort, involving people from different areas of Malvern. One set was knitted by a church-based Knitting and Sewing group, one knitted by a lady in Worcester, and sewn up by a friend and her 95-yearold mother, and one by several people who are neighbours or friends. We are immensely grateful to all those who helped in any way with this project. Each set was given to a local care home where they could be displayed for the residents.”
Give thanks for artistic gifts, and that through the creativity of others we may grow closer to you. Pray also for all staff and residents of care homes over the festive season, especially those who find this time of year difficult.
