RITCHER Lodge Aged Care seniors in Bayswater have donated boxes of crocheted and knitted items for people experiencing homelessness as part of Homelessness Week 2016.

The women in their 80s and 90s have been busy making small rugs, scarves and beanies throughout the year.

Lodge lifestyle Assistant Gordana Groznik, said knitting and crocheting was great therapy for the women.

Chantal Roberts from Shelter WA said the goods were a reflection of how generous the Western Australian community has been in donating items to people experiencing homelessness.
