Butterfly Quilt for charity

Today the finishing touches were added to a beautiful Butterfly Quilt, a joint effort by members of our Fibre group.

The quilt will be donated by BACG to Lifestyle Group 90, which is a Vietnam veterans and partners group that raises funds for community projects and charities. 

Proceeds from the quilt will go to the Danii Meads-Barlow Memorial Fund. The funds will be used directly in the development of an appropriate alarm device for the pump used by diabetics approaching hypo-glycaemia. The alarm will send an urgent alert, not only should the pump malfunction, but in its design, will alert of a pending emergency of the sufferer of this dreadful disease.

The quilt will be given to representatives from Lifestyle Group 90 at the BACG general meeting on September 4.
