Charity Community Knit: Crochet A Square
You know, we are supporting Time To Talk Befriending this quarter - a charity that helps people over 65 who feel chronic loneliness caused by social isolation.
We will be donating 100% of the profits of all sales from October to December from Vicky's Sponge Cake but we wanted to do more. So, we are hosting a Community Knit.
The Community Knit will create some granny squares. We have already started making some, but we would love it if you guys got involved, too!
Why Granny Squares?
The reason we are knitting granny squares is that we will be filling them with tea and sending them out to the people involved with Time To Talk Befriending!
The idea behind it is that the lovely people will receive them can enjoy a tasty cup of tea and then be able to reuse the super cute square!
How Can You Get Involved?
You can get involved by knitting one (or more yourself!).
We will be hosting knitting events in some of our stores. Upcoming events:
Brighton CommuniTEA Knit 24th Nov with Mercedes from Sewing Bee
Bristol CommuniTEA Knit 21st Nov
Manchester CommuniTEA Knit 24th Nov
Nottingham CommuniTEA Knit 21st Nov
