Knitting Group Volunteer (Forth Valley)

Older people in Stirling and Clackmannanshire knit items for local charities and other good causes.

For volunteers aged 50+ in Stirling, Falkirk and Clackmannanshire

Knitted and crocheted items are distributed to local hospitals, care homes, children’s organisations, animal rescue charities and some are sent abroad to Africa or Eastern Europe.

Regular meetings are held to give volunteers the opportunity to socialise with other knitters, compare knitting projects and have a tea or coffee. The opportunity for social interaction has an overall positive effect for older people’s health and well-being.

If you can knit or crochet the group would be delighted to welcome you.
