Whether you knit, crochet or sew, your crafting skills can help save lives and raise funds for our COVID-19 Recovery Service.
Our ‘Get Crafting’ challenge means using your talent to create 335 of your favourite designs – or a heart pattern to represent us – which you can then sell to raise funds.
You can produce all your designs at once or over the course of a month and you can also invite your fellow crafters to help you out. Once you’ve made everything, then it’s time to sell your crafty creations to friends, family, neighbours or anyone else in your community.
There are currently 335,000 people living with chest, heart and stroke conditions in Northern Ireland and these people are more vulnerable to the effects of COVID-19. With your crafting skills, we can provide a vital service that will help these and any other people who recover from the virus with ongoing care and support as they recuperate.
