Disadvantaged youth with connections to the Door of Hope Superheros camp could soon receive a hand made quilt from the Fisherbowlers sewing club.
The sewing group, made up of women from Cosgrove retirement village, handed over 30 hand made quilts on Monday morning.

Organiser Robin Walker said sewing the quilts had kept them busy during the COVID-19 lock down.
She said members of the group raided their stash of material to make the blankets.
Earlier this year the group sent about 115 quilts to Victoria to help victims of this summers’ bushfires.
“We just like doing things for other people, it gives us a purpose,” Ms Walker said.
“It has been a god send during the virus because we’ve been able to keep occupied and sane.”
This round of quilts have been given to the Door of Hope to help them run their Superheros camps.
Chaplain Jo Kemp said the camps are designed to bring joy to primary school aged children who are going through a tough times.
“It might be kids that have had a parent in prison or a death in the family – it could be a hole range of reasons why the children might get referred to us,” she said.
She said this year they haven’t been able to run camps but they still hope to connect with the children.
“We’re hoping to make contact with all the camp kids and their families soon so that we can take a little gift to them,” Ms Kemp said.
The quilts which were donated by the Fisherbowlers may make up part of that gift.
