A quilting group has been working on a special project to raise money for the Rutland Stroke Club.

Members of Wing Quilting Group will host an exhibition in memory of a former teacher who died of a stroke last year.

Alison Maudlin founded the group eight years ago when she moved to Uppingham and ran regular classes at Wing village hall.

The members have all contributed to a sampler quilt which will be included in the exhibition and raffled at the end to raise money.

Club member Jeanette Hogarth said: “Alison was very highly regarded and taught us all such a lot that we wanted to do this in her memory to raise as much money as possible.”

The exhibition will take place at the church in Wing on June 8 and 9 with sales and refreshments in the village hall. Admission is £2 and it will open from 10am until 4pm both days and the quilt will be raffled at the end of the weekend.
