⭐ Little Hugs for Manchester ⭐
This began as an urgent appeal in the aftermath of the bombing at the Ariane Grande concert in Manchester. We had to do something and after speaking with the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital about sending Little Hug blankets to children and families there which they have said they would love we decided to make and send joint Little Hug blankets These were also to be offered where any of the Woolly Hugs crew knew families affected by the bombing. So far we have sent four of these, and three large bagfuls to RMCH.
We’d love to continue, so please, we need 12 inch ideally or 6 inch squares in Stylecraft Special DK, in the palette below which we are calling Love and Light.
Having spoken to RMCH, they would love to continue receiving blankets from us, so this becomes an Ongoing project and we would love to receive squares at any time. We will send blankets to Manchester along with our other two in our Little Hug project – Great North Children’s Hospital in Newcastle and the Royal Hospital for Children in Glasgow, We will add in smaller Little Hugs for Manchester too.
Next collection dates, Monday 2nd July and Saturday 6th October. We will be closed for the summer, last posting for any project is July 2nd, we restart on September 15th!
