THE women of Malvern’s Inner Wheel club have launched an appeal for wool to help needy children throughout the world.

All donations will be turned into blankets, jumpers, hats and scarves and sent to charities that provide aid where it is most needed.

Wool can be left in collection boxes at Knitting Parlour, Great Malvern, the Co-Op, Malvern Link, Jane’s Flower Box, Barnards Green or PS Presents, Upton-upon-Severn, until Monday, October 22. Anyone who would like to join the knitting group can visit the Malvern Room, Malvern Library, between 10am-noon on Wednesday, October 17.
