"I popped into @salvationarmyuk as it's next to Slimming World. They had brand new crochet blankets for £4. The reason I bought this was because there was a leaflet with it and it explained that these blankets are made by local communities of the Ogmore Valley and Bridgend, some of whom are making them as part of their rehabilitation after an accident or illness. Others for relaxation or recreation. The blankets are made with love and sometimes frustration as they work through their particular problems to complete a task. Making the blankets makes them feel useful, helps to fill their time and diverts them from their problems. By the community for the community. I will treasure it."
