Folk really are fabulous and have been asking about our Easter Craft sale. We are delighted to confirm it will be going ahead, and that we have chosen the amazing charity WAY (Widowed and Young) to be our recipient. Across the UK, WAY provides peer-to-peer emotional and practical support to young widowed men and women – married or not, with or without children, whatever their sexual orientation – as they adjust to life after the death of their partner. Their peer to peer support is run by a network of volunteers who themselves have been bereaved at a young age, so really understand what folk are going through. For many they have been, and sadly will be, a vital lifeline. Amazing work in desperate and bleak times, and we know they have supported several lovely folk within our Woolly Hugs community.
We’d love to do something for them now.
We are going to run an online Easter Craft sale in a similar way to previous sales. All funds raised will be donated to WAY.
We’d love your help…
We are looking to make and sell small/lightweight Eastery/Spring/ Generally gorgeous items. Sewn, crocheted, knitted, any crafty crafts, the how is up to you! To keep postage costs to a minimum we ask that ideally anything made can be sent on to a buyer in a ‘Large’ envelope. Bigger items are welcome too, we are just aware of postal charges!
Some suggestions for you but we are open to others!
* Easter decorations – chicks, eggs, sheeeeps, rabbits.
* Easter/spring bunting/ garlands, decorations
* Brooches, keyrings, purses, accessories
* Other Lovely Things???!!!
Last posting for crafts to be SATURDAY 7th MARCH.
Please message for posting information. Thank you so much.
If you’d like to contribute funds to help the sale (support other crafters, help with postage costs) then we’d love to hear from you. This will be a big team effort, and donors will make a difference to what we can achieve here, and we’d be very grateful. Our paypal is firstname.lastname@example.org and please make sure you add a contact name and note that it is for WAY.
The Sale itself will take place over the weekend March 20th / 22nd.
It will be run through an Event page on Facebook (MNWoollyHugs) , with a selection of items on our Auction site here on the website to help those not on FB
Fingers crossed this will be a great success and we can help the lovely folk at WAY help even more lovely folk.
Thoughts are with those who have very sadly needed WAY’s support, especially amongst the Woolly Hug family. xx
We are truly grateful for all support, heartfelt thanks xxxx
