MEMBERS of Capel Needlecrafters, have made some colourful quilts for Project Linus UK.
The scheme started in America to provide home made security blankets to the Denver Rocky Mountain Children's Cancer Centre.
Project Linus was named after a character from the Peanuts comic strip. Peanuts creator the late Charles Schulz was pleased to have Linus inspire blanket makers to help sick and traumatised children.
It came to this country in 2000 and welcomes all hand made blankets, which are then given to sick children. Originally targeting paediatric cancer patients, Project Linus has broadened its focus towards seriously ill and traumatised children.
