The one day knitathon kick started the annual Guardian Angel Knitting Program to help reach a national target of 110,000 knitted items donated to children in need.

The program, now in its 16th year, has provided the gift of warmth to more than two million children.

This year knitted garments will help vulnerable children supported by Save the Children Australia. All knitted donations will be warmly welcomed by kids and families who need it most, helping babies, toddlers and children to stay warm and healthy through its education, health, protection and emergency relief programs.

Pharmacy manager Jenny Graham said the Guardian Angel Knitting Program encourages people of all ages to knit a beanie, scarf or jumper to help disadvantaged children stay warm in winter. Free patterns for all skill levels are available from Guardian Pharmacies and Spotlight stores.

All knitted donations to be dropped off at the local Guardian Pharmacy by August 31, 2014.
