Craft for Charity
30.11.21 St Mark’s has a busy Craft Group. They meet in the church on the second Thursday of every month.
For their present project they are knitting and crocheting blankets. Baby clothes, hats and scarves are on the go too!
What is made is collected together and taken to a place in Attenborough in Nottinghamshire. This place is really special. It’s run by girls who were orphaned in childhood.
They run ‘Operation Orphan’. They have been trained in disaster rescue. They go to disaster areas where there is great need. Children are often orphaned in these disasters. They support those who take responsibility and care for these orphans. The support may be with food, clothing and education. Warm blankets, hats and gloves are very welcome in these tragic situations. Craft for Charity members also make small monetary donations each time they meet to support the education needs of the victims of disaster.
There are great needs in this country, as well as abroad and the Orphans Charity supports where they can. ‘Craft for Charity’ is a welcome cog in the works of saving those struggling in desperate times.
‘Craft for Charity' is proud to be part of ‘Operation Orphan’. If you would like to join them or support them you can help them make a real difference in mending broken lives.
