Knit for Peace has grown and grown, we are now sending out £5 Million worth of donated knitting, and have over 22,000 knitters in the UK (and that’s not even counting the French, Spanish, German and even Australian knitters!).

Please help us meet the cost so we can continue to send warm clothes and blankets to those in need (especially as the weather is so cold). Show the world how generous you are -or in the name of a friend, a relative or in remembrance.
