Across the country an army of knitters continually fill our warehouse with the most amazing array of goods. Historically these items were sent on containers to Africa where, believe it or not, babies were dying of cold.
Since the cessation of our container work we have linked with two other Christian charities, Mission Without Borders and Samara’s Aid.
SAMARA’S AID send goods on lorries to the Syrian refugees in camps in the Middle East and even into Syria.
MISSION WITHOUT BORDERS, working through the local churches, assist those in most need in communities and orphanages in Eastern Europe. Winters are harsh in these countries with temperatures plummeting to well below zero. A blanket or warm jumper can be the difference between life or death.
You can be part of our Anniversary celebrations without leaving the comfort of your armchair.
Print a copy of one of our blanket patterns below (or contact the office and we will send one to you).

Fundraising CAN BE FUN. Encourage your friends and family to take part by sponsoring you and raise funds for our African projects. They could:
Sponsor per square completed.
Sponsor each square of a specific colour included in the blanket.
