Co-ordinator, retired Father Alan Brodie said 65 women gathered at the Bull Creek college to complete the work over a day.

The group, including members of the All Saints church ladies fellowship, who provided refreshments, and entertainer Meredith Higgins and her ukulele, was motivated by a visit from Perth Anglican Archbishop Roger Herft .

Father Brodie, formerly of the St Andrew�s parish in Shelley/Riverton, said many knitted squares were left over and they would be joined into blankets for distribution.

Local churches of all denominations donate hand-knitted goods through their metropolitan agencies in a project that began about 15 years ago.
