Soft Toy Project

Chanel College Young Vinnies – Soft Toy Project

During the last couple of weeks of Term Three the Chanel College Young Vinnies ran lunch time and after school workshops hand stitching soft toys to be donated to new-borns in the Wairarapa. Over the course of a week and a half the group hand crafted around 60 teddy bears, dinosaurs and elephants with the help of material donations from the Wairarapa Parish.

Students enjoyed the experience while getting a greater appreciation as to how difficult this type of work could be.

The toys created are being distributed to new-borns in the region care of Whaiora nurses, with many going to children born into hardship.
