Springhill’s Crafty Ladies
Every year for the last 13 years, a team of crafty creatives have combined novel ideas with yarn, cotton, chocolate and nimble fingers to knit their way to raising over £200,000 for Springhill Hospice.
Lead by Maureen Stiles and Christine Barlow, the dynamic duo look after a network of unsung heroes and heroines who, using odds and ends and donated materials, create something from nothing and sell it for the Hospice.
With firm favourites like Dammit Dolls, Happiness Kits, beautiful baby booties and hand knitted socks, to name but a few, they keep the Springhill Crafts shop at the Hospice, our charity shops and their own huge tombolas and stalls stocked to brimming.
“ We create handmade gifts for all occasions, from baby booties to children’s cardigans, hand knitted jumpers jumpers to are ever popular socks...they fly off the shelves. And as for our Christmas and Easter gifts, chicks and Santas with chocolates inside them always go down a treat” – Christine Barlow
Maureen added “We also create bespoke wedding favours which is great because on your happy day, the Hospice is benefitting”.
