The family of Mollie, a young adult who attends Futures Life Skills Centre for different activities, have raised enough funds to help us purchase a new knitting machine for our Arts & Crafts sessions. Funds were raised in memory of Mollie’s late grandmother.
The knitting machine will be available for all the young people who come to Arts & Crafts sessions in the Life Skills Centre. The machine has a number of different programs, including pattern knitting, which will really allow the creativity of our young people to flow.
Laura Newman, our Creative Arts Coordinator, commented,
It will be a multi-sensory experience which will involve sound and encourage movement. As well as creativity, working with the many kinds of different coloured and textured wools. It will also have huge calming and therapeutic benefits.
Mollie frequently visits the Life Skills Centre and she loves her art and cookery sessions – read more about her amazing creations. We can’t wait to see what Mollie makes next!
We’d like to say a big thank you to the Grover family. Without their generous donations, we wouldn’t have this brilliant piece of equipment.
