Twiddlemuff Gang (Knitting Group)
The ‘Twiddlemuff Gang’ is calling for new members. If you can knit, or would like to learn, how about coming along to meet with other carers for knit and natter in ‘Kay’s Kitchen’? Not only will you have time for yourself and make new friends, but you will be contributing to our Twiddlemuff Project. Twiddlemuffs are knitted muffs that can help agitation and restless hands of people with Dementia. We will be donating some of the Twiddlemuffs to Sunderland Royal Hospital’s Alexandra Centre (Dementia Unit), others will be available for carers to have via a small donation. All donations will be used to replenish wool and twiddle supplies. It may be that you are not a knitter but would enjoy adorning the muffs with pompoms, buttons, ribbons or anything that can be safely twiddled with. All materials will be provided.
The ‘Gang’ meets weekly at Sunderland Carers Centre on a Wednesday from 1pm until 4pm (of course you are free to come and go whenever it suits).
Donations of wool, buttons, ribbons or anything that can safely be twiddled with will be gratefully accepted.
Address: Sunderland Carers Centre, Sunderland Tyne and Wear, SR51SF
