Jean’s hard at work raising money for charities – but she is running out of wool!
One day, Jean Rouse who lives in our Plumpton Villa Glenroy community started knitting a teddy bear for one of the staff. When she finished it the rest of the staff and family members of other residents were so impressed they too wanted a teddy bear to give to their kids and grandkids.
So Jean got busy and she now has 48 teddy bears on order…and growing!
The teddy bears are priced from $10 to $16 and all money Jean raises is donated to charity.
Charities Jean’s donated to include the Salvation Army and the Victorian Police to help Victorian kids in need of some help, love and kindness.
Jean’s running out of wool and is hoping her local community members can help her by donating wool to help her help local charities. If you have any spare wool to donate that would be greatly appreciated!
Please drop off to 7 Lewis St, Glenroy VIC if you live nearby – stay for a cuppa and cake if you can. If you can’t pop by, you can also post some wool to this address.
Your wool donation will help Jean to continue helping others in our community.
