I am the local drop off point for Manawatu region people wanting to donate quilts to the people of Christchurch affected by the earthquake last week. I have received over 30 quilts so far which I shall be sending down very soon. There are several more that are awaiting quilting. I think that the worst thing of the quake is the constant aftershocks, whilst the main quake was bad it is that never ending shaking that must be hurting a lot of people. I feel very sorry for them and want to do my bit to help so passing on quilts is the best I can offer. Quilts offer comfort and show that someone cares.I want to convey my best wishes to those caught up in this earthquake.
