It’s amazing when you can use your hobby to raise money for charity. This is exactly what LoveCrochet is encouraging us all to do this November. They are asking crochet enthusiasts to have a go at crocheting a snowflake to help raise money for Home-Start – a UK based charity that helps families with young children have the best start in life and cope better with whatever challenges life throws at them.
LoveCrochet.com joined forces with Bella Coco and Kirstie Allsopp to ask us to send in crocheted snowflakes that will be displayed at the Christmas Handmade Fair at Manchester Central on the 20th – 22nd November. The snowflakes will then be sent to families across Britain that are supported by Home-Start to show that they are not alone – an uplifting message. You can also donate money to Home Start through their website or through the Love Crochet website – http://www.lovecrochet.com/home-start-donation.
Using Sarah-Jayne’s easy to follow tutorial on YouTube, I crocheted six in three different colours to send off for the appeal. They were fun to make and look super cute and I’m planning on making more to put on my Christmas tree later.
Have a go and support a great cause!
