Canowindra's Wraps with Love group has been hard at work, and their first month's rugs have been delivered to the library.

The donation of 16 rugs brings them to a total of about 58 for the past 12 months, an incredible effort on behalf of a local group of volunteers.

Coordinator Dawn Langford said the group's eight knitters are working away faithfully, but they could use more wool.

The rugs are to be made of eight-ply acrylic, if anyone has excess at home or would like to contribute to the cause.

You can deliver it to the HACC Centre during business hours.

Canowindra's knitters put their rugs together at home and meet at the HACC Centre on the fourth Thursday of each month for a cuppa.

Dawn delivers the rugs to Canowindra Library monthly, and they're taken to Orange to be sent on to the Sydney headquarters.

Wraps with Love are then distributed to those in greatest need by more than forty non-denominational and non-political aid agencies.

In the past 23 years they have sent more than 400,000 Wraps to people in over 75 countries, including Australia.
