snvb identified a need for a Charity Craft Circle following several enquiries from potential volunteers and local community groups. The project aims to provide opportunities for people who are isolated and are interested in handicrafts, to use their skills to help local charities.
The volunteers produce handicrafts that are passed onto local groups to sell or that will assist them in their services. Past projects include blankets for dogs waiting to be re-homed by a local animal charity, children’s dressing up clothes for a local museum and greeting cards to be sold at craft fairs.
Sessions are held on the 2nd Wednesday of every month between 2.00 pm and 3.30 pm at the Volunteer Centre in Whittons Lane, Towcester. New members are very welcome.
If you are interested in joining the group, or if you have any ideas for what the volunteers could make, contact us on 01327 358264 or send us an e-mail . If you are unable to attend these sessions but would still like to make items please contact us, as some of our members are working at home.
Additionally, we would be pleased to hear from you should you have any craft materials that you would like to donate e.g. knitting wool or card would be useful.
STOP PRESS – we have now run out of knitting wool and would love to receive some donations.
Charity Crafts is currently knitting cardigans for refugees, hats & mittens for the Samaritans Purse Operation Christmas Child shoebox appeal & collars, hats & fingerless gloves for The Sailors Society.
