At our September business meeting, we received a request from Knox’s Knit and Knatter Charity Knitting Group. The group, led by organiser Angela Pagan knit many items that they donate to charity. Their current project is called ‘Twiddlemuffs’ which is a knitted muff with items such as buttons and zips attached that are given to dementia patients to assist with restless hands. They provide a wonderful source of visual, tactile and sensory stimulation and after their first donation many more care homes requested them.
When they got in touch with us, we were more than happy to donate £500 in order to provide the wool to create 100 Twiddlemuffs which will benefit 20 people in 5 local care homes.
