Creative Connection

Choose a craft and get a group together on zoom or in real life.

Today, our support has never been so vital which is why we’re launching a brand new fundraising campaign called Creative Connection. It’s all about coming together through the healing power of crafting.

All you need to do is host a get-together with a crafting activity.

We’re asking you to join in to raise money for our essential services. Not only will you be helping us to support more people across the UK, but it’s guaranteed to make you and those around you feel good too!

So, if you fancy a crafting challenge and could do with a positive boost yourself, this campaign is for you!

Holding a Creative Connection event with your friends and family is the best way to get involved.

This could be online or face to face. Collaging, card making, origami, knitting, you name it, you can do it. It’s all about getting fingers moving, voices talking and faces smiling.

We’ll be providing lots of ideas on different crafts with step-by-step instructions plus a jam-packed calendar of events with expert webinars, craft-a-longs and challenges. Perfect for a little extra inspiration or motivation.
