We would love to have you join us in supporting children in care.  There is nothing nicer than a handcrafted item that we can include in our backpacks.

The children have loved these items in the past and knowing someone has made something especially for them is an amazing feeling.

We would love for you to get involved; items can be dropped off at collection points around the country.

How You Can Help

  • Knitting or crocheting items to go in backpacks of infants under 2 years old (cardigans, beanies, booties, pram blankets).
  • Sewing quilts any size.
  • Knitting blankets.
  • Sewing marble mazes. These are useful when children are struggling to stay focused or just need something to fiddle with at a stressful time in their lives.
  • Donating wool, quilting fabric, wadding, or money for raw products

One young man who we gave a quilt wrote a thank you that said: “No one ever thought so much of me that they gave me something that they done themselves” which we think sums it up perfectly.
