Knit To Support The Grenfell Tower Block Fire Victims

The charity Knit for Peace is selling three patterns donated by designer Jane Crowfoot to raise money for victims of the Grenfell Tower Block fire in the London Borough of Kensington & Chelsea.

The official death toll of the tragedy, which took place in the early hours of 14th June, stands at 80, although police have warned that this could rise. Many residents who escaped lost everything in the fire. Knit for Peace responded to requests for knitted blankets and trauma teddies for the victims and will be sending knitting kits to survivors to help them "feel the calming effects of knitting".

Knitters are asked for a £5 donation to download each of the three patterns.

The patterns are:

The charity if currently looking for gifts of warm adult clothes, bed socks, scarves, adult hats and large blankets.  Information on how to donate is on Knit for Peace's website.
