Welcome to our Christmas Craft Sale 2018 for the amazing charity CRY (Cardiac Risk in the Young)
So pleased to announce that this year’s Christmas craft sale will be supporting the amazing work of CRY (Cardiac Risk in the Young) For EVERY family affected and always remembering WatcherOfTheNight’s daughter Ashlee who tragically and very suddenly died unexpectedly, later it was found out she had died from Sudden Arrythmogenic Death Syndrome. They had no idea.
Every week in the UK at least 12 young people die of undiagnosed heart conditions. Since its formation in 1995, Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY) has been working to reduce the frequency of young sudden cardiac death (YSCD). CRY supports young people diagnosed with potentially life-threatening cardiac conditions and offers bereavement support to families affected by YSCD. CRY promotes and develops heart screening programmes and funds medical research. CRY publishes and distributes medical information written by leading cardiologists for the general public. CRY funds specialist referral, screening and cardiac pathology services at leading UK hospitals.
CRY offers subsidised ECG and Echocardiogram screening to all young people between the ages of 14 & 35. All of CRY’s public events are free to attend. This is a fabulous charity doing much needed work and we would like to support them. *We will send a third of all we make to CRY and use two thirds for Woolly Hugs’ own ongoing projects to help keep them running and inclusive.
Every penny raised will go to help others, we hope you will support us, either by crafting, buying or even maybe both! Thank you so so much. x
We are aiming to make and sell small/lightweight Christmas craft items, and to keep postage costs to a minimum we ask that ideally anything made can be sent on to a buyer in a large envelope. We are open to larger items too obviously, that is just a guide.
Some suggestions for you, but we are very open to others too…
- Stocking fillers, although obviously Father Christmas is REAL, this is just to help.
- Christmas tree decorations, bunting, garlands, general decorations. Always very popular, as are totally bonkers quirky things, yes we are thinking gin wreaths, woolly slugs and sock pigs, who knew??! 😀
- Small gifts – Little bags, purses, brooches, hair accessories, key rings, gift bags, tags,
- Clothing items such as gloves, hats, scarves, – if making clothing PLEASE inc the ball band or let us know so we can pass this info on to those who buy. xxx
- Lovely lovely things!
Woolly, fabric, embroidered, beaded, all crafty crafts welcome!!
