A group of Ceduna knitters have come together to help the Childhood Cancer Association raise funds to assist children with cancer and their families.

Local Housing SA worker Natasha Stott saw the association’s request online for Port Power hoodies to be knitted for the Childhood Cancer mascot dog called Elliott.

An Elliott dog is given to every child diagnosed with cancer in South Australia and is not only a cuddly toy but also a therapeutic tool.

The Childhood Cancer Association and Port Adelaide Football Club have teamed up to give Elliott a Power hoodie and asked for people to assist by knitting.

Joyce Brewster, Vicki Burfitt, Una Connellan, Donna Halls, Claire Hoffrichter, Colleen Hoffrichter, Heather Hoffrichter, Elaine Kloock, Raelene Knowles, Betty McWaters, Teresa Pascoe, Chrissy Stott, Carol Suter, Sandy Taylor, Janet Thiselton, Glynis Trenowden and Jocelyn Wighton answered the call and came together with their wool to knit.

Helping with the knitting was big Port Power fan Jack Lane.

A box of more than 70 Port Adelaide hoodies has been handed over to the Childhood Cancer Association in Adelaide for Elliott.

Each Port Adelaide Elliott toy is $40, with all funds raised from the sale to go directly to supporting children with cancer and their families.

To support the cause please contact Kirsty at Childhood Cancer Association on 8239 1444 or info@childhoodcancer.asn.au.
