New in 2019 - we liaised with the Befriending Service of Age UK Bromley and Greenwich to organise the gifting of lap quilts to elderly residents living on their own who the Befriending Volunteers visit in their own homes.
We gifted an amazing 47 quilts in December 2019 via the Age UK Befriending Volunteers. We hope to be able to post some pictures of the recipients with their quilts quite soon.
But we don't have to stop there, Age UK are happy to receive more.
The lap quilts should be approximately 40"x50", but this is a guide only. Materials should be robust enough for laundering so cotton blends might wear and wash better. Please use warm batting and/or soft backing like fleece.
Please make sure that your quilt is labelled with one of our lovely labels, available from Margaret Everett.
