Thanks and Acknowledgements

Rucksack Appeal
'Thank you all at the Knitters and Stitchers for your continued support for the 'Welcome Rucksack Project'. We have been able to put a mixture of scarves, hats and gloves inside each of the 30 single male rucksacks. The children also got scarves, hats, gloves and blankets.
Thank you all again for bringing joy and a welcome to all asylum seekers arriving in Norwich.' (Carol Chilton)

Big C
Dear Claire,

Thank you so much for the beautiful heart cushions which your lovely group of ladies have made for us at Big C. We are always very grateful to receive these for our service users.

Keep up the good work, ladies!

Best wishes

Knitting for Ukraine
'A convoy went out with many items destined for Ukraine in December and this included several sacks of knitting from our wonderful members. We have had a big thank you from Matt Cole who organises the convoy to all those members who knitted, stitched and donated items – they were very gratefully received. We are now collecting more items for the next time they go out which will be sometime in February.
At the Open Day in Norwich, we received an amazing donation of many beautifully knitted jumpers – some of which are pictured here. They are now packed up ready to give Matt Cole for the next convoy to help children in need in Ukraine.' (Linda Brown)
Christ Church Norwich
A big thank you to everyone who made Angels for the display in Christ Church (New Catton) – the Church next to the Wool Loft. If you want to see the full display the Church will be open from 10 to 12 every weekday during December.
Salvation Army - Sheringham
We were delighted to be invited to the Norfolk Knitters and Stitchers Exhibition at Wymondham Central Hall, showcasing their wonderful homemade items.
The North Norfolk Group have kindly donated items to sell for fundraising and to be given to support our local community. They have also donated blankets for the Armenian Ministries to be distributed to Ukraine. We are very appreciative of all their support

Baby Essentials Norfolk
'I met a lovely lady called Theresa Richards. She is helping to run 'Baby Essentials'- A place where families in need can collect clothes, nappies, nursery items etc. She was very interested in the NKAS. She thinks what we are all doing is absolutely wonderful. She was so very grateful for the children's clothes I left with her. She said without doubt most of them will be given out after the weekend. A father had had to move in with his parents and his 2-month-old baby and had nothing. It was so nice to see the end result of everyone's hard work' (Claire Edmeades)
Colney Cancer Unit
Delivered hearts and driver bags to the Colney Cancer Centre which were very gratefully received, thank you.
Hope Church
'I just wanted to say a thank you for the knitted Noah's ark; our children will love using them. You must have spent such a long time making them. They look amazing. Thanks again.' (Sam, Hope Church)
