THE Salvation Army have received more than 80 hand-made items from the knitting and crochet group at Newleaf Communities.

The items will be distributed to disadvantaged adults and children living in Fairfield.

Bonnyrigg resident and group member Gloria Wong said many people needed warm clothes.

"We have been doing this for nine years now," she said.

"We love making hand-made items and donating them to people in need."

Another group member, Michele Curry, said the thought of making a difference to the life of someone in need made her feel great.

The group is now calling on more people to join and help give back to the community.

"We encourage more people to join us," Ms Curry said.

"If you're unable to attend, you are welcome to knit in your spare time and donate the items for the next appeal."

Newleaf Communities meet first and third Wednesday each month, during school terms, at Cabrogal Cottage, 1 Kennedy Way, Bonnyrigg.

For details, call Cabrogal Cottage on 9610 0275.
