Big Knit

Grab your knitting needles and wool and join in our Big Knit!  We have lots of patterns from novice right through to expert. 

If you haven't knitted before then now is the chance to get started!

Each little hat that you knit and send in raises 25p for our charity, enabling us to support older people in Lancashire.

Get Knitting

Twiddlemuffs are a great way to get creative, with any style or pattern possible!  They can help people living with demetia to feel comfort and also explore different textures with their hands.  Give it a try! 

Get creative!

Patchwork Quilts

For keen sewers out there, making a patchwork quilt is a great way to upcycle sheets, table cloths and even clothes. 

Pebble Painting

Find a smooth pebble in your garden or when you are out exercising and paint the family.  A great way for adults and children of all ages to spend some quality time together.

Sign Making & Bauble Painting

Use your imagination and create personalised decorations and trinkets.  Any style, colour or design can be done and you'd be amazed what materials you can use from around the house.
