KNIT & NATTER UPDATE, JUNE 2021

The Knit and Natter group hope to resume on Tuesday 27th July if restrictions on social contact have been lifted.   Watch this space for more details.

Subject to further Covid advice the dates for the rest of 2021 are as follows:

31 August / 28 Sept / 26 Oct  / 30 Nov / 21 Dec.

All dates are 2 – 4 pm in St Richard’s Hall, Swallowfield Road.

The CCRA Knit and Natter group are immensely grateful to the Royal Borough of Greenwich’s Charlton Ward Councillors (Gary Dillon, Gary Parker and Linda Perks) who, along with the Co-op, have supported the group through their philanthropy.    We are also grateful to Rowan Wool who have assisted us with donations.  If you would like to donate wool or crafting equipment to the group or if you know of a charity who would benefit from our services then please contact Brenda on 07939 090 676 or email brendataggart49@gmail.com 

The knitting has carried on regardless of Covid and not being able to natter. That said, we are all looking forward to meeting again in person and swapping our lockdown stories over exceedingly good cake, with a nice cuppa.

Just before Easter we delivered Easter Bunny gifts to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Neonatal unit for the Spring Babies.  As well as being delighted at the Easter gifts, Sister Teri Stimson was grateful to have some new bespoke mitts and red hats.  The unit uses red hats for babies who need extra observations.

We have also made another donation of storks to the London Ambulance Service and these will be given to babies during their Neonatal Transfer.

Although we specialise in charity knits, one of our knitter undertook a commission from a very eminent puppeteer – a bespoke Lamb Chop puppet. The proceeds have been donated to CCRA to support our fantastic activities.

If you want to know more about how you can contribute to the charity sector, learn to knit or have a project in mind then contact Brenda on 07909 090 676 or email brendataggart49@gmail.com
