    A great group of people from all walks of life, helping to support each other using crafting techniques and helping me form valuable friendships.
    Home cooked food helps as well as I have physical disabilities and cooking for myself is very difficult.

    I have been a member of this group for four years and over that time I have seen the difference our group has made to so any peoples lives in our community. There is a warm welcome for any new member and the sound of laughter throughout our weekly meetings is heart warming. This welcome is offered to anyone of any age, ability or denomination. Any grant we are awarded would make such a difference to the group and also to the church.

    I’ve been a member of this club for just over 2 years having left my job that was affecting my health but the other members all made me feel welcome and now i enjoy going to it every week ,
    we share different crafty ideas and help each other that are familiar with any type of crafting.
    The club has also helped out other members that have been at a low point due to
    bereavement and it has given them new friendships and new hobbies.

    The craft club helps to prevent loneliness for people of all ages but especially the elderly, who perhaps otherwise not see anybody
