THE first big load of beautifully knitted scarves, beanies, mittens and jumpers for older children has been delivered to Food for All for the Winter Woollies Appeal.

Knitted garments and wool for those who can’t afford to buy them can be left at the Hastings branch of the Bendigo Bank for collection.

Among the last load was a huge bag of knitted elephants loved by children who are not well, and also older people with dementia.

Southern Peninsula Food for All collects donations which are then distributed by the Mornington Peninsula conferences of St Vincent de Paul to needy families.
