These charities need knitting volunteers

Knitting for charity is a form of volunteering that combines your passion for crafting with the fulfilment that comes from supporting a good cause.
Knit for Peace is an organisation which matches knitters with good causes, so that their creations may be distributed to those in need. They send out tens of thousands of items per year and have estimated that they have received knitted items worth over 5 million pounds.

Charities Requiring Knitters

Age UK has teamed up with Innocent Smoothies and is on the search for avid knitters to create tiny hats for their smoothies, with 25p from each sale being donated to the cause.

Battersea Dogs and Cats Home welcomes donations of knitted blankets, providing the gaps for tiny paws are not too large to pose a risk.

The Donkey Sanctuary is on the search for knitters who can create knitted donkey toys for sale in their stores, to raise essential funds.

Woolly Hugs is a friendly, online-based community that seeks knitters to provide blankets for a whole host of causes and projects. Previous donations include sensory blankets for children with autism and items for the RVI hospital in Newcastle.

Why not try a craft kit?

A craft kit, such as a knitting, crochet or macrame kit, contains everything you need to start and finish a project, from beginner to intermediate level. Kits include everything you need to craft home accessories, toys, friendship bracelets and much more.

A knitting, crochet or macrame kit provides crafters with the perfect introduction to projects which can be donated to worthy causes. Knitting for good causes not only helps those in need feel valued and supported but also allows knitters to create items with a sense of purpose.
