Angels for animals: Quesnel woman fundraising for SPCA

Tina Gregor wanted to give back this year, and is crocheting angels to raise money for the SPCA

Two weeks ago, local woman Tina Gregor decided to get out her crochet hooks and make something to give back.

Gregor is on disability, awaiting an operation, and spends a lot of time at her favourite hobby. She decided to combine her free time and her love of crochet with her wish to help animals, and is creating angels to sell, with all proceeds going to the Quesnel SPCA branch.

“I thought, since I’m home, I might as well do something for Christmas,” says Gregor. “It keeps me busy.”

The angels could be used for tree or room decorations, or even to adorn a gift.

Gregor has been selling the angels – eight for $15 – via her Tina’s Twisted Threads Facebook page, and has so far raised $164 for the SPCA. She plans to continue to sell angels right up until Dec. 22, when the SPCA closes for the holidays, and take in the money on the last day.

“I just wanted to quietly go in there and give some money for the animals,” says Gregor.

“I really love animals – my whole family does.”

Gregor’s mother, Norah, agrees: “[Tina] is such a kind soul who loves animals to bits,” she wrote in a message to the Observer.

Gregor currently has one cat, but hopes to get a dog from the SPCA once her operation is completed.

Anyone who would like to purchase a batch of Gregor’s angels can get in touch by searching for her Facebook page: Tina’s Twisted Threads.
