What's Needed?

Norfolk and Norwich Hospital - need your help

The following items are urgently needed. Fingerless mittens, mufflers, winter fascinators and sewn fleece fingerless mittens. Contact Edna if you can knit or sew any of these items.

Norwich Food Bank

We have had a special request from the Food Bank for fingerless mittens, hats, baby clothes, gloves and blankets. Also ear muffs and toys.


Would like Santa's and snowmen for a stall to raise money. Also tea cosies.


We have been asked for mittens by several charities - full mittens for small children and fingerless mittens for older children to the elderly.

The Bowthorpe Group is trying to help Age UK who require 4500 smoothie hats. They already have about half of their quota but we still need more please. These can be knitted now but should be delivered by early December please. Every hat raises 50p for Age UK.


Don't forget it is nearly time to wear your poppies, please knit a few extra for the Poppy Appeal.
