Mairi Hallman, a Gr. 12 student at St. Michael Catholic High School and a volunteer at Kemptville District Hospital, wanted to help with the making of comfort dolls for children waiting in the Emergency area of KDH. She organized a bake sale at her school to raise money to buy knitting supplies, and then organized a knitting club for Gr. 7 students to learn how to make the dolls. Above she is pictured with Chelsea, who is proudly holding 2 dolls recently completed by herself and another dedicated student. The dolls are ready to donate to KDH.
