Help Australian wildlife ravaged by bushfires!

January 8, 2020

All branches of Tararua District Library are now a collection point for donations of animal rescue crafts (knitted, crocheted or machine sewn pouches, bags, etc) for Australian Wildlife suffering from the recent fires.  You can drop your creations off there, and be sure that we will see that it gets there.

UPDATE 13 JAN 2020:

The AARCG is full of supplies and currently stocktaking. Please do not send any more items.  However, they suggest either donating what you’ve made to local animal shelters, if useful, OR create Australian soft toys (knitted, sewn, crocheted, felted etc), sell them and donate the money to help support the animals financially.

If you wish, you can still donate your creations to any branch of our library, and we will arrange a sales stall.

Not crafty? You can still help by donating fabrics. Check at your local library for what are suitable fabrics.

Thank you for so much for your support.
