Knitting & Crocheting for Charity - Evening Meet-up
Posted on July 11 2016
Once a month I host a Charity Evening where you can come and work on a project for one of the following charities (or one of your own choice). It's the last Thursday of every month and runs from 5pm to 8pm and you can drop in anytime during the evening. I always have a selection of nibbles and drinks to keep you going until dinner!
|Knit for Peace||Blanket squares, hats, baby clothes, mittens, jumpers etc. for distribution to the needy in the UK and abroad|
|The Mission to Seafarers||Hats, balaclavas, scarves, gloves for sailors|
|East Surrey Hospital||Comfort blankets and mitts (twiddle muffs) for elderly patients and those suffering from dementia|
|Samara's Aid Appeal||Blankets and clothes for babies, children and adults for those in need in the Middle East|
|Operation Christmas Child||Hats, gloves, scarves, puppets etc. needed for shoeboxes during the annual Christmas appeal.|
If you can't make it to the evening meet up then I have a box in the shop to collect donations which you can drop off anytime! In particular, I am keen to collect knitted or crocheted squares. They should be 3in/7½cm depth x 3in/7½cm width or 6in/15cm depth x 6in/15cm width in Double Knitting so that they can be sewn together easily.
Thank you for your support!
