THE 10 members of Sacred Heart Craft Group worked together this year to create a quilt and pillowcase for an important raffle.

Raffle proceeds of $1344 have been handed to Ipswich Hospice to contribute to the comfort of its guests.

Craft group member Eileen Vass was keen to "give something back" to hospice for the care that was given to her husband, Graeme.

"He was here for 79 days before he passed away in April," Mrs Vass said.

"The dedicated staff looked after Graeme so well.

"We sold a lot of tickets in the raffle. The winner's a friend of mine from Birkdale and she knew Graeme very well."
