Knit-In community event

Two members (and baby) attended the 3rd annual Knit-In at the St Johns Centre in Old Trafford  click here for facebook page

The event was for people to bring along knitting needles and pre knitted squares to help make blankets for refugees in camps across Greece.

They were also raising money for the charity ‘With Love From Layla’ click here for website

Layla is a local 10 year old who has been volunteering in Samos with her mother Zubia helping with the refugee children. They raise funds to supply essential and fun items to children in need to make their lives a little more comfortable.

We had a lovely few hours sewing together knitted squares, chatting to lots of different people, listening to a very moving presentation by 10 year old Layla and eating a delicious lunch!
