Knitting group celebrates four years of supporting local charities


Local knitting group Social Knitworks recently celebrated its fourth anniversary.

“Bringing together a diverse group of knitters and crocheters, we support a variety of projects. Beneficiaries of our handmade items include Whipps Cross Hospital, the Magpie Trust and Celia Hammond Animal Trust. And through our sales, we’ve raised around £15,000 for charities, including the Corner House Project, Haven House, CHAOS, St Mungos, Magic Breakfast and St Francis Hospice,” said group founder Liz Hickson.
