Wanstead knitting group continues fundraising with Christmas gifts


Wanstead-based knitting group Social Knitworks is raising funds for rough sleepers by selling a range of festive knitted items, including crocheted Christmas puddings (£6.50), large snowmen (£8.50), Santa bears (£12) and knitted heart tree decorations (£2).

Last month, the group raised £374 for The Legion and Wanstead’s Corner House Project through sales of knitted poppies.

“I have been amazed by the support we have received,” said Liz Hickson, who established the group in 2018.
