yarn for zambia 03Two crates full of knitting yarn, knitting needles and crochet needles collected by members of the local Fellowship in South Jutland, Denmark arrived in Lusaka, Zambia.

yarn for zambia 01Four schools in Zambia have benefitted from a fantastic activity by members of the local Fellowship of South Jutland, Denmark. At Norborg on the island of Als which lies to the east of the Jutland peninsula in Denmark, guild members posted themselves in front of the local Co-ops (supermarkets) for four Saturdays during the cold November 2020 asking the shoppers to bring left over knitting yarn. This resulted in twelve sacks full of yarn and a lot of chatting and publicity. The beach flags showed who they were.

Another Danish guild at Sonderborg supplemented with yet another sack. All the sacks along with the needles were properly crated up to be shipped to Lusaka with the help from the Danish Flensborg guild, at the German border.

How much pleasure comes out of our relatively small effort is a wonderful reward on its own! This is what Twinning and our Scout and Guide Fellowship is about.
