A charitable organisation supporting families in need by distributing new & pre-loved clothing and essential items to their little ones.
Registered Charity in England and Wales (No 1176568)
We aim to include a knitted cardigan and hat in each pack; a truly personal touch that shows just how much we care about the babies in our community.
If you can knit and would like to join us, we would love to have you on-board. Any other knitted garments or blankets would also be very welcome.
We rely solely on donations but if you can’t provide your own wool, we might be able to provide wool for you so please feel free to ask.
If you’re interested please contact us for more information; we can tell you what sizes we need most, where you can leave the items to be collected or we may be able to collect from you if you can’t get to one of our collection points.
We can provide you with basic patterns, or you can use your own.
If you know of anyone else who might like to help then why not get them involved. Please tell your friends, relatives and neighbours too so that we can help as many families as possible.
We want to involve the community as much as we can so we would like to be able to give wool to people who would love to knit but haven't got the resources to provide wool themselves: If you know someone who can't knit anymore but has got unused wool knitting needles or buttons – we'd love to have them so please let us know.
If you're throwing clothing away, please think about cutting off the buttons; providing they're in good condition we can re-use them and help the environment at the same time!
We've found that our knitters and older people in particular have gained a real sense of pride and purpose in being able to help us in this rewarding work, which in turn has had a positive affect on their own well being.
Knowing the time and care that has gone into making it, every item we receive is very much appreciated; so whether you knit one or one hundred, your efforts won’t go unnoticed.
Here are some examples of the beautiful items that have been knitted and donated.
Thanks again to those who are able to knit items for us.
