‘Thank you’ Knit and Natter

I, Surtag Hack, having been attending the Knit and Natter Group at Burngreave Ashram, would like to officially express my gratitude for their time, commitment and kindness. The knitting group, led by Val, acted as a community hub and relayed me to other groups, such as the Vestry Hall Social Café, Art and Crafts at Verdon Street Recreation Centre and Longley Community Centre.
Though I was initially home bound for a couple of years, being reluctant to socialise with new people, attending the knitting group was one of the best decisions I ever made. Not only did it get me out of the house, but I also made new friends, increased my confidence, and got over my trust issues, to the extent that I am now starting my own art and crafts group.
The Knitting Group is meeting on Fridays, from 1.00 pm till 3.00 pm, its mission being to help people with mental health issues be an active part of their community. Some of the group’s activities include knitting for humanitarian purposes, holding exhibitions, social outings for group members, and seasonal celebrations. I am proud to be part of such an extraordinary group of people. We are currently contributing towards knitting the largest gown in the world; you can imagine this is making
our skills take steps forward!
