Thank you for getting in touch!
Knit Aid is run by two volunteers in our spare time, and we get lots of emails and donations daily so please bear with us if it takes a while for us to respond. We have provided some information below which may answer your query, so please take some time to read through. If your message is not answered by the below info, we will be in touch soon!
What are you accepting?
We work with volunteers who work in the refugee camps to make sure we are only sending donations which are needed and useful. Because of this, we are currently only accepting the following items:
These can be sent as a gift set all together (preferable) or separately.
Please use only dark and unisex colours. We cannot guarantee that light coloured knits will be sent to refugee camps as we have been specifically directed not to send these.
> Little Snug Riding Hood toddler hooded cowl (pattern available on our website)
> Hot water bottle cover including hot water bottle (Pattern available on Ravelry for free with code KNITAID)
> Fully sewn together blankets
(Please do not send individual squares or rows. We no longer have the capacity to accept and sew together squares)
Please do not send anything other than that listed above. We accept both knitted and crocheted items.
Where shall I send my donations?
C/O The Big Yellow Self Storage
Units 1-3 Wyvern Estate
Please include your name and contact details so we know it's from you.
If you'd like us to notify you if your parcel has arrived, please leave a note with your email address in the package and we will email you.
We are asking all knitters who are sending in knits for an optional monetary donation towards our fundraiser which helps us to continue sending your knits to refugees. It can be as little as £1/£2 (or more!) and every penny will count towards the work we do.
Please donate here.
Thank you so much for your help!
Shahnaz and Karen
