Corsham’s enthusiastic knitters take to their needles for charitable causes

Corsham’s enthusiastic knitters take to their needles for charitable causes

Springfield Community Campus is delighted to play host to one of the largest knitting groups known to exist in the country.

Knit and Natter is a voluntary group that meets at the campus on a monthly basis, and at its most recent count has somewhere in excess of 80 enthusiastic knitting members.

The group is currently knitting blankets in aid of Operation Orphan. The blankets are sent around the world to places of conflict, such as Syria, where they provide valuable warmth and comfort to children and people in need.

Other recent projects have included knitting pink flowers which were passed onto the Meningitis Trust to be sold to raise funds, and similarly the group recently produced animal puppets in aid of the RUH cancer unit.

If you happen to spot the group during your next visit to the campus (they are hard to miss), why not pop in and say hello to them? They are a very friendly bunch, and do exceptional and inspiring work.
