Get crafty for Breast Cancer Haven's Big Tea Cosy campaign

Solihull Editorial 31st Jan, 2019   0

CAFFEINE lovers in Solihull are invited to brew up for breast cancer.

Breast Cancer Haven, West Midlands is calling on fundraisers to get crafty and host a ‘Crafternoon’ as part of its annual Big Tea Cosy campaign.

The St Bernards Road charity is asking supporters to not only put the kettle on but also get out the wool and have a go at knitting or crocheting something which can be kept or given to someone going through breast cancer treatment.

Breast Cancer Haven is a charity which supports those going through breast cancer treatment.

The volunteer-run charity relies on donations to run its support and treatment therapies from counselling to aromatherapy massage.

Pamela Healy OBE, chief executive of Breast Cancer Haven, said: “This year’s Big Tea Cosy is going to be even cosier than ever as we once again team up with the world’s largest knitting supplier – LoveKnitting, and their incredible community of knitters.

“Our visitors tell us that visiting Breast Cancer Haven makes them feel safe, welcomed and incredibly well-supported, and we think The Big Tea Cosy campaign sums this up perfectly.

“The added element of again being able to knit or crochet something to give back to someone currently undergoing breast cancer treatment, makes the campaign even more special.”
