As stories and traditions are passed down from one generation to the next, so too are much-loved woollen blankets thanks to a group of volunteers. SuperGrans Manawatū is celebrating its volunteers having repurposed and edged 300 blankets for pēpē (babies) sleeping in wahakura (harakeke bassinets). Donated woollen blankets are washed, cut to size and edged with satin ribbon. The blankets are then given to Mokopuna Ora for distribution.
