We receive wonderfully knitted squares made with thought and passion. A big thank you to all those busy knitting.
Furthermore we would like to thank the companies who generously support this project.
The BNH Team went up to Umphang to deliver your beautiful blankets to the students at Umphangwitthayakom School and were amazed by the heartfelt welcome they received.
Please be a little bit patient as we have to select some pictures out of the thousands taken.
But we would like to express our gratitude to all the sponsors who supported this project and made it the success it is.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank Mr David Grant from East-West Logistics Co., Ltd. to bring the blankets up to those in need.
We will upload pictures and a travel report as soon as possible.
Thank you for your patients.
With their help the thousands of squares become blankets.
The first blankets are finished.
In night-work Sister Louise and her team from the Fatima Center completed the first blankets.
They look fantastic, warm and cosy.
Thank you very much!

She talked beforehand that she would try to persuade the cast to do some knitting for the project.

The next day Jackie called Angela and said she had spoken to the team and they were excited about knitting a Mamma Mia blanket! She ordered 25 knitting kits and asked us to deliver them to their hotel as soon as possible so they could start knitting straight away.
Angela went to see the show for a second time a few days later, with friends visiting from
