Spondon Knitters Say Thank You

Spondon Knitting Group recently presented a 6ft long blanket, that took 9 months to complete, to the Spondon Royal British Legion branch at Derby County Football Club match.

This is Spondon Knitters' way of saying ‘Thank You’ to the WW1 generation for all they sacrificed, to shape the world that we live in today. At half time the blanket was presented and donations for the Poppy Appeal were collected at the end of the match.

The blanket will now be displayed at various other locations in Spondon throughout the Thank You movement, which ends on Sunday 11 November, Remembrance Day.
