Knitwits

Session Four - Collaboration help for homeless

Main Building Room 1.25 • Fri 08 November 2019 18:30-20:30

In collaboration with Help for Homeless society.

We've got the expert knitters in, who can teach us how, so ALL ABILITIES ARE WELCOME ♥

Write it in your timetables and bring your friends too - Friday 8th November from 6.30 to 8.30pm in the Main Building Lecture Theatre 1.25 ♥

Knitwits is a free volunteer project for students who can charm the yarn, are itching to get stitching, or are hooked on crochet (get it?) - but who also want to make a real difference within communities. 

Knitwits is a fun and safe space where students of all needlework abilities can meet with nursing home residents and the local elderly community for some good, ol’ fashioned knitting and nattering.

Not only will this look great on your CV, but you’ll meet some characters with buckets of life experience, bridge the generation gap, and combat loneliness in the elderly. And to top it all off, we’ll donate all the finished projects – blankets, booties, jumpers, cuddly toys – to children’s wards or to homeless charities. If this sounds like a project for you, you must be a knitwit too!

We will provide materials at these sessions (and tea!), however, feel free to bring along projects of your own.Our volunteering opportunities will be on Wednesday afternoons. Keep your eyes peeled on here or our facebook page.
