Knit For Your Neighbour

Helping you stay warm this winter

Could you knit, crochet or sew a blanket for someone in need of extra warmth this winter?

We are launching our ‘Knit for your Neighbour’ campaign this month – November 2023.

We are looking for individuals and groups to come together and make beautifully warm blankets that our Village Agents can distribute to the most vulnerable this winter. Keeping them warm and well.  

All completed blankets can be dropped off at any of our Talking Café venues across Somerset. Blankets can then be collected through the Talking Café venues as well, or our team of Village Agents will make sure that blankets are delivered to the most vulnerable if unable to get to a Talking Cafe.

If you don’t knit or sew, but would like to donate a blanket, we will also accept new blankets with tags on, but we are unable to accept secondhand blankets.
