the project rolls out
The project gained momentum during the year with approximately 50 Units, Districts, Peer Groups and Trefoil Guilds taking up the challenge to handmake and provide a bag to assist in containing the drain apparatus following surgery, allowing increased mobility and dignity for patients across NSW and ACT.
Coordinated by Pip Bloomfield, members wishing to participate are supplied tape, tags and labels that identify the project and as necessary arrange delivery to a hospital needing bags. Many Units and Regions have been able to give the bags they have made to a hospital or clinic in their own local area, providing a great sense of achievement and community service. The project also provides a safe environment for the girls to learn about and discuss such a critical health issue.
