  • Race for Life: We walk all over cancer in running spikes

    Posted by Deadly Knitshade on March 15, 2009

    S&B Londoners have always thought that cancer was really rubbish. We’ve been helping battle it since day one with our knits. There was our London Lion Scarf and our Blanket for Breast Cancer. And now we’re Racing for Life because cancer just can’t seem to take the hint.
    Tina ‘Wickedwoollywitch’ Bragaglia is doing the Race for Life (bright red stick and all) in memory of her brother. You can see her sponsor page here. We thought that was rather fabulous and couldn’t let her race alone.
    So inspired by Tina, and other teams such as Socktopus and IKnit , we at S&B London are joining in Race for Life too. We’re joining the event on the 6th of May at 7pm in Battersea Park (so no time off work or weekends taken up required).

    Join Team S&B London

    The race is on the 6th of May at 7pm in Battersea Park. We’d love you to join us whether you help us raise a little or a lot.
    To sign up just drop us an email at stitchettes@stitchandbitchlondon.co.uk. We’ll let you know how to sign up and we’ll add you to the team.

    We’ll be racing in a group at a walking pace to make sure some of us less gazelle-like members don’t walk on their own.

      Hi Guys,I live in Welling, Kent. DA16 1AU.I have made some chemo caps which I would like to donate but I’m not sure where to take or send them.I am disabled with a progressive disease and I knit not only for pleasure but also as therapy for my hands and I have found that making the chemo caps is also relaxing due to their simplicity.So as long as I can find a home for them I am happy to keep knitting. I hope you will be able to help me,

      With Thanks
      Sue.

      • Hi Sue

        Lovely of you to knit some hats. The best plan is to find an address for your local hospital and send them along there. Perhaps the The Kent Oncology Centre located at Maidstone Hospital.

        Maidstone Hospital
        Hermitage Lane
        Maidstone
        Kent ME16 9QQ

        Hope that helps.
