A group of knitters and crocheters (pros and beginners!) coming together to create for the local community
What is Woolly Matters?
A great chance to meet new people, learn a new skill and give back. Each term we'll decide on the organisation to knit or crochet for. Last year we knitted and crocheted for the Mother and Baby Unit at the Royal Hampshire County Hospital, and we raised money by selling knitted bunnies and scarves for Trinity Homeless Shelter!
How do I get involved?
Use the "Apply" tab above to sign up for the project; we will email you with lots more information about the sessions and the important when and where! This project takes place at King Alfred's Campus, and all wool and knitting needles are donated by members of staff, student, and local community members so it won't cost you to volunteer with Woolly Matters!
Volunteer with a friend?
Volunteering for Winchester Hub is social and you'll have the chance to meet many like-minded people, but why not ask a friend to sign up with you too?
Volunteering with Woolly Matters is flexible around you!
Winchester Hub is committed to making our activities inclusive to all students. We can make reasonable adjustments to application processes, selection workshops, training sessions, volunteering projects and other activities on a case-by-case basis.
We also provide ongoing support for the students we work with, so if you have particular accessibility needs, including special educational needs, please do get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know how we can make the activity more accessible.
