Dear Norfolk Knitters, On behalf of Operation Christmas Child, I want to say a huge thank you to you for the generous donation of knitted items you gave to us this year. We know that the children love to receive hand knitted items in their boxes – these items are often take straight out and put on! This year the volunteer team in Norfolk collected and processed over 9300 shoebox gifts from across Norfolk. These gifts have been sent to needy children in the Ukraine. Kind regards Emma Emma Fawcett OCC Regional Manager Eastern

West Norfolk Wool Shack We have just received into the office your kind donation of hand-knitted hats and scarves. Thank you so much for your generosity and for thinking of our vulnerable young people and families this winter. We will distribute the hats to street homeless people through our partners at the Salvation Army as we feel the hats would make the biggest difference to these people.

24/04/2017 - Taverham Knit and Natter
The Taverham Knit & Natter regularly supports Arthritis Uk with items for sale at the stall in The Norfolk & Norwich Hospital through our member Jan, but recently we have been involved in a new project, helping The Alzheimer Society put a new record in The Guiness Book of Records. Another of our members, Daphne organised the patterns for woolly snakes and eventually posted off 51, produced in record time too. The record was broken at over a thousand and the snakes will be sold to raise funds for the Society. We enjoyed making the snakes so much a few might appear round the Bishop's Garden on July 16th. Another of our members, Eileen Dungar has donated some wonderful knitted shops and shopkeepers as well as toys and flowers, animals and all sorts of creatures for the summer event. Meanwhile we all continue to enjoy knitting a vast range of items knowing they are all appreciated by those in need. Margaret
11/04/2017 - Home Instead Senior Care
Thank you so much for the lovely twiddle muffs you delivered to us last week. We are in the process of identifying people for these and will be delivering them soon. We will be running our “Be A Santa To A Senior” at Christmas again this year and would be very grateful for anything you would be able to donate to this again. Last year the blankets and twiddle muffs were very popular and well received by people who may not of otherwise had a present to open on Christmas day. Thank you all very much once again.
