Lap quilts for the elderly

BQ contact for more information: Polly Munday

 

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 48 quilts in December 2019 and 22 more in December 2020, via the Age UK Befriending Volunteers. 

 

But we haven't stopped there, Age UK are always adding new clients, so we continue our Christmas push.

 

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.
