About the event
KNITTING GROUP – FRIENDS OF FAITH
We are a multi-faith, ecumenical local group - in 2024, we shall meet from 10.30-12.30 on the third Saturday of each month in St Mary’s church hall - so the first meetings will be on 20 January and 17 February.
Last year, using the wool that was so kindly donated to us, we were able to give our knitted items - baby blankets, jackets, hats and mittens - to ‘Baby Basics’ in Sunbury and to ‘The Extra Mile’ at Hampton Mission Partnership.
We also made hats, scarves, gloves and children's and adult jumpers that were sent to Ukraine, and shawls and wool hats for the elderly which were then given to ‘The Extra Mile’.
This year we hope to include making hats, scarves and gloves for the local homeless if possible.
How can you help?
If you have some balls of wool that you can donate, we can turn them into items that are urgently needed, locally and internationally! Please either:
· give them to one of our knitters, or
· bring them to one of our monthly meetings, or
· drop them into our ‘wool donations’ box inside St Mary’s church.
And if you want to join our happy band of knitters, do come along to one of our monthly sessions, or for more details get in touch with our organiser, Lynda Imir, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you – and Happy New Knitting Year 2024!
