Wanted – avid knitters.

Donations of 500 knitted items are being sought from across Melton to help keep people warm this winter.

Knitters are being asked to attach “a message of kindness” to their woolly goodies and drop them at the Taylors Hill Neighbourhood House or Melton and Caroline Springs libraries by June 10.

The items will be distributed, via local charities, to people doing it rough this winter.

“Not only is [this] a practical gesture in keeping people warm when it’s cold, but … receiving something new, and just knowing there are people in the local community who care enough about them to make something that takes time and effort, is good for people’s overall wellbeing,” a Melton council spokeswoman said.
