We are now closed until the beginning of February.  However, it has been brought to our attention that there is a surfeit of knitted hats. The Charity has requested that, instead, we knit blanket squares and scarves. Please go to ‘Read more’ to see the pattern for the blanket squares. We thank you for your continued support.
