EASTWOOD and District Bible Society held an annual knitting event and raised £1,000 for a project in Cambodia.

Members of eight local churches knitted blankets for two hours and raised sponsorship money to buy bibles for people in Cambodia.

Group chairman Don Chambers hosted the event at Beauvale Methodist Church and invited people from Eastwood St Marys, Greasley St Marys, Jacksdale Christian Centre, New Horizon, Newthorpe Baptist and Eastwood Baptist.

The blankets are sent to Eastern Europe.
