Knitwits

Give it a go - Knitwits session

3A 3rd floor of the SU • Wed 22 January 2020 18:00-20:00

Give it a go session for Knitwits! Knitwits is a volunteering project within Cardiff University and is always free. All materials are provided and you do not need to know how to knit.

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. Keep your eyes peeled on here or our facebook page.
