2022 Knitting Drive for Vinnies

2022 Knitting Drive for Vinnies

Start Time: 01 June 2022, 8:00 am
End Time: 08 July 2022, 5:00 pm

Calling all knitters and knitters to be!

Residents of ACH Group residential care homes are once again supporting South Australians in need!

Residents are seeking to partner with knitting enthusiasts from across the state to make mittens, gloves and scarves for people supported by charity organisation St Vincent de Paul Society (Vinnies).

Anyone handy with a needle and thread is being asked to knit the base pieces for mittens using a supplied pattern and drop off to ACH Group Perry Park Residential Care Home at Port Noarlunga, or ACH Group’s office in Mile End before 8 July 2022.

From there, residents will sew the pieces together and decorate the mittens ready to be gifted to Vinnies. Residents will also knit gloves and scarves; two items Vinnies have identified are also in demand this winter.

Download the pattern here.

Let’s help to keep hearts full and hands warm this winter!

The completed knitted pieces can be dropped off or posted before 8 July to:

ACH Group Perry Park
26 River Road
Port Noarlunga SA 5167

ACH Group Office
22 Henley Beach Road
Mile End SA 5031

Not a knitter but have some balls of wool taking up room in your cupboard? We would love your donations dropped to the above locations!

For inquires on the knitting drive contact Perry Park, Lifestyle Coordinator, Angie Clark on (08) 8329 7777.
