I just opened an account with easyfundraising. Now, every time I shop I will be contributing to Knit for life . How that contribution will get to Ronda?

Hi Pam. I have had a request from a fellow UK member, regarding posting of squares through a group. She collects them from some ladies, but they cannot afford the postage. I am just wondering if she would be able to give them to Knit for Life to send to KAS. Sorry, I'm not sure how you or your budget operates, so this is just a question, not an expectation. I can send you a copy of her letter, if you would like.Thanks.
Hi Pam, I have only just worked out how to reply to the comments on my profile!!! This is in reply to your comment last March, only 10 months late! My husband and I are both from Gloucester but have lived in this area since 1972. We came here as Richard was posted to Folkestone as an Immigration Officer, we lived in Hawkinge for a short while before moving into our first house in Sandgate. After 10 years we moved to West Hythe. In 2003 we moved into Hythe itself just minutes away from the High Street - so convenient! Our eldest daughter and husband live in Walmer, so we know the Deal area quite well. Where in beautiful Shropshire do you live? I have been voting for you, using two email addresses that we have, hope you get enough votes for the £300. Happy New Year!
KAS supplied blankets, hats, handwarmers and toys to over 5,500 children in 2017. If Ronda’s wishes come true, in 2018 even more children will receive the gift of warmth and love from around the world.
