Knit to save the bees!
Posted by Deadly Knitshade on September 15, 2009
S&B London love bees. We really do. So we thought we’d pass this one on:
Seasalt is a friendly little Cornish clothing company. As you may know, last year we ran a project called Go Knit! that raised nearly £3000 for charity. The campaign involved members of the public donating hand-knitted scarves for us to display in our shop windows which were then sold with all proceeds going to a chosen charity (last year we donated to The Cinnamon Trust).
The campaign is back for its second year, this time to support The Bumblebee Conservation Trust, a lovely charity that is responding to the plight of the declining population of our bees and we wondered if you could help?
If you could donate a scarf we would really appreciate it. Alternatively, if you could pass on our message to anyone you know who might like to help that would be brilliant too!
Each of the scarves will have a large ‘hand-knitted by…’ tag which is clearly visible to everyone passing the window. The knitter’s name (and optional website information) can be written on the tag, giving the knitter recognition here in Cornwall – and of course helping us to help the bees! The link to our website is www.seasaltcornwall.co.uk
If you would like to support our campaign please send any scarf donations to:
1 Church Street
The scarves will be displayed throughout October, sorry, we know it’s short notice! It would be great to have any scarves by the 1st October, or soon after as we will continually re-stock the charity window as scarves arrive.
If you would like any more information please email us.
Leigh, Chloe …and the bees!
