|Last month we launched a campaign so we can continue to help those in the most wretched circumstances. To donate see here.
Here are some very heart warming thanks:
“Thank you very much indeed for the generous donation of wool, needles, knitting kit bags, blankets and toys we received. The knitting workshop attracted a markedly higher take up. Experienced knitters and newcomers alike fell on the supplies of beautiful yarns, selected their own needles, and began to help one another decide what to create. I wish you could have seen the genuine surprise and delight in the faces of the women we work with, some of whom I hadn’t seen smile so readily before. They seemed especially cheered that they could choose from a really wonderful selection of materials.
We were touched by the number of women who said they looked forward to showing us the knitting they were planning to do between weekly sessions with the group. It seems to have struck a chord in particular with women who have little to no English, and it is good to realise that basic knitting can be a non-verbal language!”

“I really cannot thank you and all the people who knit for you enough.
The bags of clothes were delivered and our residents and their children were over the moon to receive all the lovely items. They said that Christmas had come early.
All the babies and children in the refuge got new clothes and we even have some left to give to new families as they arrive.
