I’m not a knitter, but when I read this article in our free Get Reading newspaper, I wished I was. Homeless charity St Mungos needs help to knit 5678 orange bobble hats. The reason behind having 5678 hats is that is the number of people sleeping on London’s streets last year. That’s a huge figure (and a 43% increase on the previous year!).
The hats will be used to create a stunt on October 26th and will be sold to make money to support the homeless via St Mungos.
I would get involved if I could. I wanted to share because if just one person who reads this joins in then they will make a difference.
It’s term time, so no crafting time for me so far this week. I have however posted my giveaway prizes along with a surprise. Hopefully Janey will get them soon!
