    Weʼve raised £370 to Host an 'end of Covid Party' for family & friends at Friars Mead Care Home

    Funded on Tuesday, 22nd June 2021

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    95 year old Des is a resident at Friars Mead care home and has taken up knitting during the COVID crisis. He has given a blanket to everyone he knows and has donated some to Northwick Park hospital. The knitting is fairly even considering his age and newness to the craft. He now wants to raise money for the end of COVID party the home is planning.

    They are machine washable and measure 88cm x73cm approx. A lap blanket or cot blanket perhaps? Blankets will be placed in isolation for at least 72 hours and will been freshly laundered.

    This is the main preoccupation for Des at the moment, and he has also added scarfs to his list of products!

    Thank you for your support of Des & Friars Mead Care Home . xx
