Woolly Matters brings together a group of individuals who have a passion for knitting and helping support others.
an hour a week
Woolly Matters brings together everyone from knitting rookies and expert crocheters together to socialise, knit and do good! It is a great place to learn a new skill (or develop your talents) while relaxing and meeting new people. Each semester items are donated to those in need and sold to raise funds for local charities.
Sessions take place every week for an hour but are flexible - we have a group of dedicated regular knitters but don't worry if you can't make every week. Throughout the year we also run stalls selling knitted items to raise money for local charities and each month we run a knitting workshop at Brendoncare with the elderly residents!
Volunteering for Winchester Hub is super social; we organise our volunteers into teams so this is a great opportunity to meet like-minded people, and why not sign up with a friend?
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 at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know how we can make the activity more accessible.
Winchester Hub is committed to making our activities inclusive to all students. We can make reasonable adjustments to application processes, volunteering projects and other activities on a case-by-case basis.
Email Helen at email@example.com if you have any questions!
