On a recent visit to Australia to spend time with her daughter ( our very own Debbie O’Connor and the brains behind TOTS challenge) Cherry Pott, suddenly found herself a volunteer for the TOTS challenge and engrossed in a heartwarming activity. Far away from her hometown of White River in South Africa, Cherry sat on the lounge with a sewing needle in hand and a bag of colourful squares at her feet. Little did she know that she was about to embark on a meaningful journey.
Being a part of the TOTS challenge was inevitable for Cherry, as her daughter Debbie devotes her evenings to sewing squares into blankets for our challenge. There was no better way to spend quality mother-daughter time than by joining her daughter in this beautiful challenge. Knitting and sewing became more than just a task; it became an opportunity to connect with family and friends while making a difference.
So, thank you, Cherry for embracing the TOTS challenge.Your finished blanket looks amazing (see below: Debbie holding the completed blanket.)
This will undoubtedly bring comfort, colour and warmth to someone in our local community, reminding them that they are cared for and not alone.
