Comments from athletes about their cushions
Woolsack has received some lovely messages of thanks from some of the athletes, teams & Games organisers. Also some makers have passed on to us messages that they have received personally from the recipient of their cushion.
Some of these messages are on the pages for each country or event in the Gifts of Cushions section of the website and some are shared below.
Kathrine Crompton emailed to say:
"I went to the Paralympic games with team GB and I want to thank you for the cushion. It was made by Juliet from Horsham."
Email through the website received 2 September 2013: We had a delivery of cushions to my home in Feltham for the Turkish boxing team. We did deliver the cushions to one of the coaches but didn't hear any more. My husband has just been given the job of head coach to the national team and on arriving at the camp was met by the captain of the Olympic team. He apologised profusely for not having written to you but expressed heart felt thanks from him and his team mates for the beautiful cushions. His has proud place on his mother's sofa!
It was such a wonderful project that reached so many and that will stimulate memories for years to come.
