There are families in our community who are suffering real hardship; struggling to put food on the table for their children, let alone clothe them. Wool With A Mission is a small, very friendly, group of ladies who meet on the third Thursday morning of each month in Woosehill Church (10am-midday). Our mission is to knit and crochet clothes, blankets and soft toys to support First Days Children’s Charity.
First Days are based in Hurst. They work with child care professionals who refer families to them when they are at a time of crisis – when they need something for their children and simply cannot afford it.
We at Wool With A Mission would like to reach out to people who would be willing to knit or crochet for these local children in need. You don’t have to be able to get to our monthly meetings (though we’d love to see you if you could). You could simply knit at home in your own time – and we will organise the collection of finished garments
This is such a good cause – and right on our doorstep! The volunteers at First Days are absolutely lovely – so dedicated – and so grateful for support. The greatest need at the moment is for new-born baby clothes and blankets. So – do you knit or crochet? Or does your Mum, Mum-in-law or Grandmother? If you would like to help us to support local families in need by knitting or crocheting – please get in touch here.
