Knitting for Africa
There are a number of keen knitters at Suma, but we didn’t realise quite how many until we heard of a project in Huddersfield that was collecting baby jumpers to send to AIDs orphans and the babies of HIV positive mothers in Africa.
Happy to rise to the challenge, Suma workers started a
lunchtime group to knit baby jumpers and hats and to
pass on their skills to colleagues who were keen to
learn the craft. Word spread and soon jumpers were
coming in from friends and families of workers too.
To date we’ve collected 50 hand-knit jumpers as well as some woolly hats to donate to the project and more are expected.
If you are interested in knitting or want to take up a new hobby and help a worthy cause, you can find out more about knitting for Africa from http://knitforafrica.weebly.com.
