“The first Mind virtual crafternoon came at just the right time for me. Giving me something to look forward to in the first weeks of lockdown”
Knit For Peace
Knit for Peace believes that knitting is good for people. As well as being fun and therapeutic, knitting brings people together and gives a way of helping others in need, providing benefits both to the knitter and the recipient. The team distributes knitted projects regularly to over 200 outlets, including hospitals, women’s refuges, refugee drop-in centres, prisons, community groups, and hospices as well as to developing countries and refugee camps.
It costs a lot to acknowledge, sort and dispatch the donated knitting so Knit For Peace relies on donations. They estimate to send £5,000,000 worth of goods each year, so your donation will help towards this.
“Please pass our thanks on to everyone. All of the items were hugely appreciated by our residents, the knitted teddies were absolutely gorgeous.”
