Each year charities and groups that work with mothers and young children make appeals for knitted garments and blankets. Methven Branch issued an invitation to their local community to join a knitting bee. The challenge, to see how many peggy square blankets they could knit during October. Peggy Squares for Plunket was borne. Women across the community responded.
In November, seventeen beautiful cot blankets were presented to the local Plunket nurse to give to families in need. An ongoing knitting group of CWL members and ladies from the community has grown from this project. They meet regularly for friendship while knitting for charity.
Each year, Catholic Women’s League branches across the country knit and donate hundreds of garments for new babies.
