Published on 10 November 2018 08:37 PM

Members of the Tulip Tree Friendship Group are coming together to help support Age UK Bromsgrove, Redditch and Wyre Forest with achieving its 500 Hats target as part of ‘The Big Knit’!

Amongst the knitters is Phyllis who is a fantastic 97 YEARS YOUNG and who has so far knitted an AMAZING 110 HATS!!

Phyllis is a long-standing member of the Friendship Group which meets every Tuesday, 1-3pm, at the Tulip Tree Centre in Kidderminster.  The aim of the group is to help raise self-esteem, widen horizons, help tackle social isolation and build confidence amongst older members of the local community.  The Charity is encouraging people to get in touch on 01527 570490 if they know anybody that would like to join, or volunteer to support, the group!
