Crochet enthusiast Jane Bender has been crocheting up a storm and when her total of completed handmade blankets reached 15, she decided it was time to donate them to a worthy cause.

Jane contacted Linda Clifford, ex mayoress of Rushmoor, to ask who would appreciate them and Linda suggested Christmas Lodge, the home for the elderly in Evelyn Road, Aldershot.

Assitant manager Mary Cooper was delighted to accept the cosy bed coverings and said they would come in very handy at the home.
