Old wool wanted

WHEN he’s not selling houses, Gary Duckmanton-Hibbs likes to knit.

The senior negotiator at Henley estate agents Simmons & Sons makes bobble hats for poorly babies but now he has run out of wool.

Gary says: “I knit woolly bobble hats for special care baby unit babies and like to use leftover or donated wool as it’s for charity and I need to keep the cost down as I have to package and post them when finished. Now I am out of wool, so can anyone donate some to this very worthy cause?”

The former art student previously featured in the Diary when appealing for old keys for a sculpture.

If you can spare any wool, you can visit Gary at work in Bell Street, call him on (01491) 634287 or email gduckmanton-hibbs@
