Craft group raise funds for Alzheimer’s Research

When Bobbie Scovell and her late husband Bill moved into Living Choice Twin Waters in April 2003, they notched up a number of “firsts” – they were the first residents to move in, Bill was the first person in Australia to start a village radio station and Bobbie pioneered the Twin Waters Craft Group.

Under her guidance, the craft group has flourished over the years and has raised thousands of dollars for various charities. The talented craft group members have also made items for Christmas boxes for needy children and have sent beautifully made knitwear to orphaned babies in the Congo.

Recently, the group held its annual Winter Craft Fair, offering bargain hunters a wide range of knitted, crocheted, embroidered and hand-sewn items. There were also handbags, art, jewellery, preserves, homemade biscuits and a popular White Elephant stall.

All the proceeds were donated to Alzeimer’s Research and Bobbie was proud to announce that $2,500 was raised. She paid tribute to the many craft group members who work tirelessly throughout the year and also to the many other resident helpers for assisting on the day. We are extremely proud of our craft group at Twin Waters!
