Caring crafters

Residents at White Rock Seniors Village selling handmade items in support of Peace Arch Hospital.

White Rock Seniors Village resident Nina McLachlan is one of several crafty residents selling hand-made Christmas items to raise money for Peace Arch Hospital.

Residents at White Rock Seniors Village have been busy creating handmade Christmas crafts to support the Peace Arch Hospital Auxiliary Society.

Members of a knitting group have been putting their skill to work, creating scarves, vests and sweaters – two large boxes worth – that they have handed off to the PAH Auxiliary Society to sell in the coming weeks.

Others have hand-painted dozens of novelty Christmas tree ornaments – each with a unique design requiring four coats of paint and glaze – which will be sold to raise money for the hospital.

Anyone interested in purchasing some crafts can call 604-250-3422.
