They have been working with local charity, Blanket Angels, to transform basic, recycled grey utility covers into brightly coloured winter warmers for homeless people in the area.
The blankets include labels with information about local shelters and organisations who can offer help or support.
Blanket Angels was set up by Anna Stephenson-Knight six months ago. She works with local sewing clubs to create the blankets that not only provide warmth and comfort – but also details of where they can seek help.
And this week, they’ve been boosted by the efforts of students and staff at Chichester College – who made 57 blankets on Thursday (15 December).
Anna said: “I’ve been really pleased by the response from the college.
“All day, people have been dropping in to design and make blankets – including people who have never used a sewing machine.
“I’m amazed we have made so many, I’m really grateful to all the staff and students who have given up their time for us.
“These are more than ‘just’ blankets – each one sees people putting a little bit of love and care into making them, which hopefully will provide a little bit of comfort as well as warmth.”
