Crafting for Communities Group

Chelmsford Volunteering Centre offers ‘meet and make’ activities which bring together a wide variety of people of all ages to support each other. Making things in a group setting is convivial and therapeutic. Individuals can join in as little or as much as they wish in a safe place. The group meets once a fortnight to knit and sew; garments, bunting and other items needed for local charities, Broomfield hospital, older people, animals and more. Group members have gone on to get a job, start external training, begin to develop a small business, take up other volunteering activity, learn new skills such as machining, help others needing support. If you have any spare wool please feel free to donate it!
