Comments from aged care recipients of quilts

"Mum's quilt was the focus of her funeral. They mentioned it in the funeral and draped it on the coffin. The quilt brought mum much joy and will be remembered always."

 

"I'll put this quilt on my bed when my beloved is no longer here. We have been married 65 years and this will help me feel close to him."

"This quilt gives us beautiful memories for my mother to take home when my dad passes."

 

"Coming in and seeing Dad comfortable under his beautifully crafted quilt gives us such joy."

 

"We have been comforted by the Bible verses crafted into the quilts."

"Thanks for the quilt. I feel wrapped in love."

 

"We are overwhelmed that people who don't know us give such a generous gift."

 

"The colours are so beautiful. It cheers mum up - and cheers us when we visit."



Sir Ivan bushfire


A ferocious fire, caused by a lightning strike, tore through the town of Uarbry in western NSW in February 2017. The fire destroyed 35 homes, leaving families devastated and homeless. The Toronto Care Group sent a number of quilts to the families, who were grateful for their thoughtfulness. One letter said "The quilts are beautiful and we appreciate them very much. They will be a welcome addition to our new home when it is built. Thank you for your kindness."

Refugees

Judy met a lady whose husband had recently been killed in a car accident. The family were Rohingya refugees and had only been in Australia for seven years when the tragedy occurred. They felt devastated at the loss and Judy immediately thought of the Care Group and rang to see if she could get some quilts. She was given two quilts - one for the wife and the other for their three-year old son who now doesn't have a daddy. Judy delivered the quilts and the mother was surprised and very grateful for the kindness shown to her. Judy says "We thank the quilting group for their contribution to an opportunity to show God's love to others."

Homeless

What does a homeless person need?

 

The ladies in the Care Group prepare packs to give to the homeless that help them to survive.
