Hampshire Constabulary contacted PEBL’s Knit and Natter group in 2019 to see if we would be willing to knit some ‘police teddies’ to give to children affected by crime. The Knit and Natter ladies were very happy to rise to the challenge and have been knitting ‘police teddies’ ever since. We were very pleased to recently drop off our latest batch at the Constabulary.
The teddies are invaluable tools for the police that are used to cheer up a distressed child. Knowing that our Knit and Natter group is not just fun but contributes toward helping a child even in a small way during such a difficult time in their life, motivates our ladies to keep ‘knitting and nattering.’
PEBL’s Knit and Natter sessions are held every 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month from 2pm to 4pm at the Prospect Community Centre. Refreshments, good company and good conversation all provided free of charge. Please feel free to come along.
