Ladies at Higham Ferrers Piecemakers Club presented Crazy Hats with 100+ heart-shaped soft pillows for patients who have had surgery for breast cancer. These pillows can be used under the affected arm to ease friction and offer comforting support. Patients report how thankful they are to have these hearts, especially when the surgery site can feel rather sore and uncomfortable.  If you know of anyone who would benefit from one of these pillows they are available (FOC) from the office - as are a selection of 'bra buddies' (knitted knockers!) made by a local lady. Our sincere thanks to every 'kind-hearted' member of the Piecemakers who kindly made and donated a heart.  Years ago the Piecemakers made and donated a huge, beautiful 'bra quilt' that was raffled off and made a lot of money.
