We're looking for knitters, crocheters and crafty crafters to create woolly wonders to raise funds for Age UK Sutton.
Knit Winter Woollies
Use your craft skills for good (and immerse yourself in a fun festive project) by creating 'Winter Woollies' for Age UK Sutton.
Every pound we get from the sale of Winter Woolies will stay in Sutton, helping us to improve the lives of older people in our community.
Winter Woollies Suggestions
While we don't have patterns for Winter Woollies (yet!) we do have some suggestions as to items you can create for us to sell.
- Festive decorations, e.g. knitted baubles, candy canes, pudding pom-poms.
- Festive bunting, e.g. crochet star garland.
- Christmas Stockings.
Find some inspiration on our Winter Woollies Pinterest Board. Fox scarves, pudding pom poms, christmas present garlands...and a lot more wacky and wonderful ideas that you can bring to woolly life, for a good cause.
Send us your Winter Woollies
Post or drop off the Winter Woollies you have created at the Age UK Sutton office. We are located just by the Sutton Civic Offices, and underneath the Sutton Central Library. Our address is:
Age UK Sutton
Unit 1 & 2 Lower Square
Sutton SM1 1EA
Please ensure you've included your name and contact details (a telephone number and/or an email address) so we know who to thank for our wonderful Winter Woollies.
We are accepting Winter Woollies up until mid-December, so there's plenty of time. And if we aren't able to use your Winter Woollies this year, there's always next year!
How we'll use your Winter Woollies
We are hoping to receive enough winter woollies to sell at local events and craft stalls, to raise money for our services like Information & Advice and befriending, that provide vital support to older people in Sutton, including those that have no one else to turn to.
We'll also donate items to older people, local groups and organisations where appropriate. However we use the Winter Woollies we receive, we will always do our best to ensure that it benefits the Sutton community.
If you would like more information about creating, donating and buying Winter Woollies, please email email@example.com or call 020 8408 7025.
