CRAFTY quliters got together in Shipley at the weekend to make blankets for an international children’s charity.

The community event was organised by Julie Wyers.

She said: “Operation Lynus is a wonderful charity.

“They donate quilts and blankets to children who have experienced trauma or been bereaved.

“The idea is that the blanket is like a hug and lets them know that there is support and help.”

UK Coal donated money to help pay for the organisation of the event.
