Hampden Park Quilt Appeal for Alzheimers Scotland

Well the big day is nearly here (Saturday 8th June) ;  if you sent a quilt in then you can see it on the website (!) just a simple search with your name will do.

Here is the latest update from Ann Hill:

10am laying the quilts begins.   We have reached our target!

Many football celebrities have signed the quilts I made for them and they will be auctioned off later in the year.   The 5,000 quilts made by our quilters will go on sale tomorrow at Hampden Park after the event.

You can reserve now by using the order form on my website – soon to go onto Alzheimer Scotland website once they start handling the orders.

Craig Brown, famous Scottish football manager will be at Hampden on Saturday to help support the project and to meet the quilters.   Billy Connolly has signed a quilt and there are ones from Jackie Charlton, Gordon Strachan, Alex Ferguson, David Coulthard, Gary – Tank Commander and others.

We have girl guides, scouts and youngsters from the Duke of Edinburgh awards scheme coming to help lay them out alongside quilters from all over Scotland and even one flown in especially from Chicago.

The title of this project is “Yes we can – together” and that is so true.   I couldn’t have done it without you.  Hopefully the press will turn out on the day.

God bless and pray for sunshine.

Ann
