Sian O'Callaghan's Healing/Memory Blanket

A Healing blanket in memory of 22yr old Sian O'Callaghan who was kidnapped and murdered on the 19th March 2011... This is for her family..

Sian O’Callaghan was a beautiful 22yr old woman who had everything to live for. She left a nighclub in Swindon in the early hours of the morning on March 19th 2011, She was last seen getting into a taxi. She was never seen again… The Police have recently caught her killer and found Sian’s body. I live in Swindon, Sians death has saddened everyone. Having a 23yr old daughter myself its so frightening to think that could have been my daughter, she was in that club only two weeks earlier..
My aim is to get enough group members to send in knitted or crocheted squares, 5”x5”, i will then crochet them altogether to make a kingsize blanket to give to her parents, for healing and in memory of Sian….
