Our loyal supporter and fundraiser Joan Townend has handcrafted another very creative handcrafted Christmas present to raise funds for the Howlands.
Noah and his Ark has been knitted by Joan, there are 17 pairs of animals, as well as other characters, which you can see in the picture.
We are always impressed with the work and dedication that goes into Joan’s knitted creations. Where could you find anything else like this? It is very definitely a one-off.
