Members of staff at Knorr-Bremse Rail UK in Wiltshire are selling raffle tickets for a quilt to raise money for Bath Cancer Unit’s Forever Friends Appeal.

Their colleague Tony Bliss lost his battle with cancer last year, so an appeal went out for shirts from staff at the Melksham site – an engineering and manufacturing facility in the rail industry – and the amazing response ensured there was enough fabric to make a quilt for a double bed.


Helen Forrester led the project, with Moreen Butler (pictured left) providing much appreciated support. Lynne Redfern and Chloe Nicholas contributed to the design and Maryanne Edwards enlisted her mum’s help with some of the stitching.

The quilt took 15 weeks to complete, and tickets are being sold for £2 each at the Melksham facility. There is also a Just giving page to make a donation Click here:
