Another local charity we supported was Wheatfields Hospice in Headingley.
The hospice supports individuals (and their families) who live with a terminal illness or neurological conditions as well as those who have lost a loved one.

We supported Wheatfields Hospice on a number of occasions including Easter (making lots of little egg cosies), their “forget me not” campaign, as well as supporting their 40th anniversary garden party and Christmas fair.
Here is a picture of my desk at home with all the egg cosies which raised £112 for Wheatfields at the time.
The little forget me not brooches we made (and which were sold at the garden party) were a huge success and we made 1,871 (!!!) of them. The garden party supported by the sale of these and some of our handmade lap blankets raised £2,781.66.
Finally, the Christmas fair for Wheatfields at which we sold lots of lovely of our handmade items raised around £270 for the charity.
Finally, we made a total of 139 lap blankets.
