THERE was nothing patchy with the efforts of a stitching group when it came to raising money for a hospice.
The Solent Stitchers, who meet twice a month in the Titchfield Parish Rooms, High Street, Titchfield, pick a cause to fundraise for every two years.
And after a moving speech from the Rowans Hospice, the team decided to raise money for the Purbrook centre.
Sandi Jones, 65, who is co-leader and committee member for the club, said: ‘We had a day where we sold stitched items like quilts, handbags and jewellery.
‘We created a quilt that had a piece from all 50 members.’ She added: ‘Each patch was 12in square.’
This quilt was raffled off along with other prizes.
Money was also raised through a tombola, and in all £1,200 was collected.
A cheque was presented to Lesley Woodcock of the Rowans Hospice.
