If you’d like to do some charity knitting that’s more useful than a hat for a plastic bottle then these organisations would like to hear from you.
Some also take needles and yarn, so it’s a great way to pass on things that you no longer want.
I’ll keep adding to this list – so if you know of other organisations please leave e a note in the comments. Comments are moderated so your comment won’t appear immediately.
This list was started with responses to Louise Scollay of Knit British when she asked about recipients for charity knitting on twitter.
