Project Linus is an international charitable organisation named after the Peanuts cartoon character Linus! The West Lancashire Group has been running locally for over 2 years and meets about every 6 weeks at Westhead Village Hall. When we get together we sew quilts, which we donate to children and young people in our community. We have made over 400 quilts since we started and we have donated them to quite a few different groups. We have given them to both Ormskirk Hospital Children’s Ward and the Special Care Baby Unit. We have also given them to Barnado’s for their Young Carers Project, to MacMillan Cancer support groups in Skelmersdale and Southport and to Queens Court Hospice.
There are about 15 sewers in the group who are very keen to offer a “hug you can keep” to babies and young people who are sick or who are going through some difficulties. We have an active Facebook page which you can follow if you want to see what we do. We welcome new members and donations to help us with our work
