Crafty fundraisers for Macmillan Cancer Support in September

Crafts and Company (the team behind the 52 Stitched Stories community project) has joined with some extra helpers to fund-raise for Macmillan Cancer Support. We are also working with two local venues to offer people different options.

The first is on Friday 27th September 10-1pm at The Shore, Whiting Bay. Come along and make a wee textile postcard while enjoying tea/coffee and a slice of cake. Cost of the crafty activity will be £3.50 (£2.50 to the charity) and 50% off hot drinks will also go to the charity. A lovely way to spend a morning while helping to support such a vital charity.

Or join us on Sunday 29th September 11-3pm at Orca Krafts in Brodick for a day of crafting. Three choices of workshops to make a postcard – painting, mixed media or textile. Come along and make something creative to take away with you while enjoying tea/coffee and cake, donated by a band of wonderful helpers. Cost is £5 (£4 to the charity) per workshop to include all materials and refreshments.

Both events are a great example of island businesses and a community group combining in creative ways whilst doing something very worthwhile. The Macmillan charity does so much to make, what is, a difficult journey so much easier. Do come along and support and let’s see just how much money we can raise for Macmillan Cancer Support.
