Thank you for all the hats

A huge, huge thank you to everyone who donated hats to this year’s Commit To Knit appeal for hats for homelessness charities to distribute. Whether you are an individual who made us one hat or a knitting group that delivered massive bagfuls of hats to us at a show, we really appreciate each and every one.

With parcels still arriving at the office, we have already delivered 100 hats to the Salvation Army in Leeds, over 450 to Big Issue North, and about 400 to Crisis at Christmas to go to various shelters, Along with some that have been given to more local charities on our behalf the total is a little over 1,000 hats.

That is 1,000 people that you have helped keep warm this winter.

Once again we are reminded how generous knitters and crocheters can be with their time.

Thank you.
