Refugee Project. Revised September 2020

Refugee project posting window is open between November and Easter.

The address will be Teddington.

You will have read that we have been revisiting our Refugee project following increased challenges to get items to folk who need it most, and this was before Covid came on the scene. Heartbreaking as the need is very much still there.

We have decided that the best thing for us to do is concentrate on blankets, so will be not be asking for clothing. Apologies as we know how keen folk are. If this is something you’d like to continue making, have a look at Knit for Peace as occasionally they collect such treasure.

 

What we are collecting now

6 or 12 inch squares ONLY in shades similar to the picture. Or whole blankets but only in these types of colours. If making the whole blanket the most useful for agencies are those single bed sized.

You do not have to use Stylecraft Special DK, any good quality soft acrylic DK is perfect acceptable. but in shades similar to these. No lighter please.

All ends must be sewn in securely, please do ensure that you make your square usable.

Please note we cannot accept second hand or used blankets for this project.

 

Where and when to post…

We are still operating our Posting window for this. It has worked will for us. So the Refugee project window is open between November 1st and Easter, the address will be Teddington.

 

Thank you so much for your continued support. Sad we could not continue as we were doing.

These colours please for blankets and squares. Any good quality acrylic DK is fine, thank you.
