Woolly wonders for Marlborough Hospice

Marlborough Hospice has been gifted some woolly comfort – thanks to a film about shearing sheep.

The film She Shears was shown as part of the successful 101 Ways with Wool Expo in March.

And after seeing special blankets on the hospice’s wish-list, members of Marlborough Provincial Rural Women New Zealand (RWNZ) helped make dreams come true.

The group has strong links with the hospice and members have been long-term supporters.

A spokeswoman says the group thought donating the blankets would be a fitting way to end the woolly promotion.

“After seeing it on the Hospice newsletter wish list members felt this would be a wonderful way to end the promotion by donating these woollen blankets which are machine washable, cool in summer and very warm in winter.

“Some of the branches decided they would also like to donate extra to get more blankets, making it possible to purchase ten in total for the eight beds in the Hospice.”
