Age is no barrier – members range from the young to some well over 100. We have groups in diverse situations reflecting the whole community. Get in touch if you are interested – there's room for everyone!
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.
MITTENS DESPERATELY NEEDED
We have been asked for mittens by several charities - full mittens for small children and fingerless mittens for older children to the elderly.
Hats for Innocent Smoothies
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.
