We are very excited for the return of the Project Linus UK, a volunteer organisation to our Bath & West Show for the second year running.
Project Linus aims to provide a sense of security and comfort to sick and traumatised babies, children and teenagers through the provision of new home made patchwork quilts and knitted/crocheted blankets, and give volunteers across the UK the opportunity to contribute to their local community.
Since the charity was founded in the UK, volunteers have created over 145,000 quilts! The star in this photo is Patrick, who overcame various problems to become the bonny lad he is now.
Many of our supporters deliver their quilts to the shows and others take the opportunity to tell us about how the children receiving the quilts enjoy them enormously.
