Camden Community come together to knit blankets for stillborn babies

Women from all over Camden have dusted off their knitting needles and taken out their wool after a Facebook post inspired them to knit blankets for stillborn babies.

Sharon Taylor took to the Camden-Narellan Community Noticeboard to ask the community to lend their time to make blankets or donate wool to support the Angel Blankets Australia Organization.

After posting to the Facebook page Taylor was inundated with requests of people wanting to help out.

Taylor hopes to continue knitting with the help of the community to provide homemade blankets for still born babies.
