Hat’ll do nicely for char­ity group

Rutherglen Reformer - - Health Matters -

A Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang char­ity is call­ing on the help of knit­ters in the area to help el­derly peo­ple in the com­mu­nity this win­ter.

LEAP are tak­ing part in a knit­ting cam­paign run by in­no­cent smooth­ies, join­ing vol­un­teers across the UK by knit­ting tiny woollen hats to fit on in­no­cent smoothie bot­tles this win­ter. In­no­cent will then do­nate money to LEAP, for ev­ery woollen hat that is knit­ted, to help older peo­ple.

R:evolve Re­cy­cle will be run­ning ed­u­ca­tional, free, knit­ting drop-in work­shops in Septem­ber at the shop on Farmeloan Road in Ruther­glen and a knitathon class for the bot­tle hats in Cam­bus­lang.

The money that LEAP is seek­ing to raise through its par­tic­i­pa­tion in the cam­paign will help fund the Christ­mas ham­per that LEAP sup­ply to iso­lated el­derly peo­ple in the com­mu­nity.

Ge­orgie Mad­den, LEAP’s Busi­ness De­vel­op­ment Man­ager, said:“For any keen knit­ters out there, please get in touch – any and all help we can get would be re­ally ap­pre­ci­ated. And if you can’t knit your­self but you know some­one who can, then please help to spread the word.”
