The Harvey Centre’s Knits and Natters Hailed a Success
ON Thursday 6th February, The Harvey Centre, Harlow invited avid knitters looking to put their needles to good use, or anyone fancying getting their fingers busy learning a new skill for a good cause, to join them for a knit and natter at their free weekly coffee morning.
From 10am – 12:30pm, the centre’s coffee club took on a new twist as they joined forces to knit winter woollies for the homeless in their community knitting workshops. The event enjoyed a great turnout with people of all ages turning up to take part.
All items created in the workshops will be donated to LandAid and The Harvey Centre is also inviting customers to bring along any warm winter wears including hats, gloves and scarves to future coffee mornings to donate to the charity.
The Harvey Centre’s coffee club takes place every Thursday on the First Floor, near the Centre Management Suite and offers the perfect opportunity for anyone, particularly those experiencing social isolation, to come down and enjoy free refreshments in the company of others.
LandAid is a charity working in partnership with remarkable businesses and individuals from across the property industry to end youth homelessness.
Bryan Young, Centre Manager at The Harvey Centre says, “We’re thrilled at the success of our first ‘Knits and Natters’ event. It’s a fantastic initiative that is designed to encourage cross-generational socialisation, as well as answering several pertinent cultural issues with regards to social isolation, skills development and, of course, homelessness.”
Hi there I need to find an experienced knitter. Having purchased all the wool, needles, pattern etc. to knit an edge to edge coat, I have discovered a problem with arthritis. Is there anyone who could quote a price for completing the project please? Kind regards Pauline
