Kipbag are a charity based in Staffordshire and support some of the most vulnerable people in our communities. KipBags are a packs of essential items designed to keep the homeless warm, clean and restore some of their dignity. Our recent collaboration with them turned into something quite unexpected…
We started working with Kipbag in late 2019, making scarves, hats and hand warmers to include in their bags as well as sending toiletries, socks, sleeping bags, first aids kits, and anything else that would help to bring someone a little warmth and comfort.
We knitted and crocheted away making as much as we possibly could in the hope that each item would make a small difference to someone in need. Little did we know that we were also contributing to something even bigger than we had initially imagined… Kipbag were working in partnership with Sarah’s Trust – a charitable initiative founded by the Duchess of York – to distribute these essential kits throughout the country!
500 Kipbags were made in total!
We were so proud to be a part of this incredible project and to contribute to the essential work that Kipbag have been continuing to do, even throughout the Covid-19 crisis, distributing bags across the UK.
