If anyone is looking for a diversion in these difficult times a Southampton based woman's refuge, The Yellow Door, is interested in donations of handmade goods to them. They would love the idea of hand knitted/crocheted toys. They have asked if interested if you can make small diverse looking people; families (mum, dad, siblings), police officers, firefighters, doctors and fabric dolls. Those along with other crocheted toys would be really useful as there are different services within Yellow Door; ISVA, Domestic Abuse Team and Children and Young People's Therapeutic Services, who could benefit from these.
Is there any one interested in joining in and doing this? The refuge is based in Highfield and the women and children who are in difficult circumstances/ abusive partnerships are finding it hard because of the lockdown which is now extended to another 3 weeks.
