Falkirk and Clackmannanshire Carers Centre will be taking part on Falkirk Charities Day on Saturday 19th August with a stall selling items including Twiddlemuffs to raise funds for the centre.
They are looking for people to knit and donate Twiddlemuffs to their stall.
A Twiddlemuff is a double thickness handmuff, with bits and bobs attached inside and out. It provides a source of visual, tactile and sensory stimulation, and keeps hands snug and warm. They have been found to be particularly useful for those with autism and dementia.
Please see the knitting pattern for further details on how to create Twiddlemuffs.
There are no restrictions on colours of wool or bits and bobs, as long as tit is interesting and colourful. Please note that, as the Twiddlemuffs will be used to raise funds for the centre, Falkirk and Clackmannanshire Carers Centre are unable to reimburse anyone for the materials used.
All donations should be delivered to the Carers Centre at 1A Bank Street, Falkirk, FK1 1NB by 12pm on Friday 18th August.
