Craft for a cause


A local crafting group in Bacchus Marsh has donated more than 150 pouches to Wildlife Victoria for injured animals.
Crafting for a Cause, comprised of residents from Providence Retirement Village, knit pouches used for injured birds, possums and joeys.
Group organiser Lillian Fava has been told that the group’s contributions are a valuable and enormously appreciated resource.
The group has also made and donated knee rugs and hats to the Royal Melbourne Hospital as well as baby jackets, hats and booties to the Royal Women’s Hospital.
The Crafting for a Cause group meets every Saturday from 1-4pm at the Providence Retirement Village Community Centre, and currently has seven participants, but Ms Fava says they’d like more.
“We are very inclusive. No matter the age, I would love to see some of the younger ones come along, I would really like to teach them how to knit or crochet.”
“We welcome everyone to come, we are a good, happy, fun group, we have a lot of laughs.
Ms Fava said they would also welcome any donations of yarn (wool or acrylic), old blankets or fabric which she uses as lining in the pouches.
If you’d like to be involved with the group or can donate any supplies, contact Lillian on 0431 161 775.
