Kntting in Pink

 

This year we decided to create a pink flower arch to raise funds for Cancer UK.  We invited people to write the name of a loved one affected by cancer on a pink paper flower and pin this to the inside of the arch.  The outside was covered with over 1000 knitted leaves and flowers made by our members.

We also machine knitted clothing and decorative items in pink to dress the stand.

 

The arch was very much admired and the messages written were moving.  After the show it was moved to Castle Gardens and displayed in their function room.

 

In June 2016 we dismantled the arch and distributed the flowers to the runners at the Race for Life held at Sherborne Castle.
