Clifton Quilters have for many years been involved with The Bristol Children’s Help Society holiday camp in the Mendips ‘ Barton Camp’. We make quilts, and recently cushions and pillows which are given to the children on arrival for them to keep. Many of the children find these items a real comfort as they cope with difficult circumstances in their lives. Some of the children return for holidays and they bring with them the quilts which were given to them previously, much worn and loved. So we know they make a difference. Some of us have visited the camp and were amazed at the facilities and the happy caring atmosphere the children are welcomed into. It gives us such pleasure to make items for the children.
These are the items sent to Barton Camp for the Christmas 2019 season.
Lots of soft toys and small items
Due to the Covid pandemic, camps have not been held in 2020.
For the Easter collection 2021 –
