Aged Care Resident Profiles » Rose Claire knits for the homeless
July 8, 2020
Written by Rachel Bailey
Arcare Caulfield client, Rose Claire has been keeping busy during the precautionary lockdown in June, by knitting beanies for the homeless.
While she had the time on her hands, Rose Claire wanted to start a meaningful project, which would positively impact the wider Victorian community.
As we are moving into the colder days and nights of Winter, Rose Claire thought that the homeless community could benefit from some handmade woolen beanies to keep them warm.
Rose Claire is going to continue to knit her beanies throughout July, before she finds a local charity or homeless shelter to donate her thoughtful creations to.
