Angelbear goes global

Now knitters around the globe can comfort children worldwide.

Back in issue 64 we told you about Angelbear, which Melanie Smith set up to give sick or needy children a comforting toy. Well, the campaign has been a success -so much so that Melanie is welcoming donations of An gel bears and nominations for charities to support from anywhere in the world. Kemp Packaging of Louth are sponsoring Angelbear, making getting bears to the children even easier. Some are on their way to a charity supporti ng child re nwith heart defects in the US, and here in the UK children in women's refuges are among those who have received Angelbears. If you can nominate a charity or knit Angelbears, visit or write to Angelbear, Melanie Smith, 53 Allington Garden, Boston, Lincolnshire PE219DW.

The Angelbear pattern has been designed to meet EU safety standards so It can be given to children. To download the pattern and safety guidelines, visit
