Sewing bee to help injured wildlife

The Woy Woy branch of the Country Women's Association hosted a sewing bee at the Woy Woy CWA Hall on January 9 to support the Animal Rescue Craft Guild.

The branch opened it hall to local people interested in creating items for the guild to used with the recovery of wildlife injured in the bushfires.

The event was organised by the Central Coast Women's Friendship Group and the branch was happy to host it.

"We are hugely grateful to Central Coast Womens Friendship Group for facilitating and organising the day," said branch president Ms Jane Bowtell.

"Thank you for giving us the opportunity to lend our hall, some materials, and our hands to such a fantastic cause," Ms Bowtell said.

"Throughout the day approximately 120 people came through our doors to cut, sew, loom, knit and crochet their way towards helping our precious wildlife.

"Some volunteers came from as far as South Sydney to help.

"At one stage we had so many people some of us had to sit outside," Ms Bowtell said.

As result of volunteer efforts more than 160 animal care items were created on the day including: 24 crochet nests, 15 extra small nest liners, 56 large inner liners, 11 extra large inner liners, 32 large pouch outers, 14 small knitted pouches with liners, one medium knitted pouch, 21 bat wraps and two "mumma" rolls.

Several packets of handkerchiefs and hydralite were also collected on the day which will be donated to wildlife carers along with the other goods.
