PLENTY of love went into Tumut Patchwork Group’s latest team effort, a quilt that will be raffled to raise money for cancer research.

Many members of the group, including Gail Ross, are cancer survivors, and when making their contributions to the quilt did so in the hope that more people could survivors.

“We started it earlier this year, and it will be the main raffle prize at our Pink Ribbon Day,” Gail said.

The day will be held at Tumut Golf Club on November 5 between 1pm and 3pm, and will feature games, other raffles and lots of fun.

“We have been selling tickets in the street,” Gail said. “Many of the girls did a block each, and then it was hand-quilted together by Julie Lorimer, who has only been quilting for two years.”

Roundabout Stitches in Tumut and Nimble Thimble in Wagga Wagga also contributed.
