Teds for beds knitting appeal

Do you love to knit or crochet? If so you could knit us a Ted in a Bed as part of a fundraising project for 2022.

In 2022 St Martins will be 50 years old. We are marking this anniversary with a series of events, exhibition and sharing of memories from the last five decades.

We know that our supporters love to knit, and we are currently not in need of any scarves, hats or gloves – but we welcome donations of tiny knitted teddies and blankets that we can use for fundraising and awareness-raising about the work we do.

A pattern is attached below – this can be used as a guideline, it doesn’t have to be followed exactly.

They are small and a little fiddly: they are designed to fit into a tobacco type tin. The dimensions of the tins are 9.5 × 6 cm and 2 cm deep (3¾ × 2¼”, ¾” deep)

Completed teds and their mini-blankets can be sent to St Martins, 35 Bishopgate, Norwich NR1 4AA

We have a supply of tins, so it is just the teddies and blankets to be made.

If you have any questions please contact fundraising@stmartinshousing.org.uk
