One of the Lent projects for the Justice and Peace group is to support a charity called ‘Knit for Peace’. We urgently need volunteers to knit 6″ squares, which will then be made into blankets for babies and very young children. We also need assistance from those who can crochet the squares together. The finished blankets will be forwarded to the London distribution centre of ‘Knit for Peace’ and onwards to refugee camps in Turkey and Calais.
The squares should be knitted with double knit wool, using any colours, patterns and 4mm needles. Non-knitters should feel free to donate wool.
There is a box in the Narthex Shop for completed squares and gifted wool. For further information please contact Carol Chilton on 01603 50601, and the ‘Knit for Peace’ web-site.
