NHSGGC From the Heart: Craft and Share

NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde are currently running a wonderful crafting based campaign, encouraging crafters and knitters to get involved in a heart making project.

The idea is to craft or knit little hearts, which can then be given to bereaved individuals as a small token of kindness.

On their website they say:

"At this challenging time when COVID-19 is affecting so many people we are looking at ways our staff can support families following the death of their loved one.

When it is not always possible to be with them at the end, we hope the small token, of a knitted heart, may help people feel more connected with the person they have lost and bring some comfort at this difficult time."

You can read about the project and how to get involved here.

The page also contains patterns for both options - a fabric heart template and a knitting pattern.
