Crafternoon 2016

let it sew, let it sew, let it sew!

Join us for an hour or two (or all afternoon) for our Crafternoon, which means getting together with friends, family or colleagues to hold an afternoon of crafting and raise money for Mind – a fun way to help us be there for everyone with a mental health problem.

Our Christmas Crafternoon means all of the above, but also cracking out the mince pies, your favourite jumper and getting into the festive spirit by making felt decorations to decorate your home and you heart.

Poppy Patch holds a Crafternoon for better mental health
Wellingborough Mind supporters at a local Patchwork and Quilting shop get crafty and raise funds for better mental health

Local business owners, Sam and Mary are holding a very special ‘Crafternoon’ on Thursday 8th December at the Poppy Patch in Great Doddington, 2pm- 7pm in aid of Mental Health charity Wellingborough Mind.

Sam at Poppy Patch, said “Over the last 12 months we have been working with Mind and their Side by Side project providing the space to run a monthly support group for people living with mental health problems. In this time we have seen the benefits of mutual support and how coming together helps all that attend. We are taking the opportunity to give back to Wellingborough Mind and help support them in the work that they do in our local community.”

Crafternoon is a fundraising event in aid of Wellingborough Mind, and the charity is calling on everyone to get crafting so anyone experiencing a mental health problem has somewhere to turn for advice and support.

Nigel Mansfield, Chief Executive at Wellingborough Mind, said “We’re really hoping people will support us by getting involved with our Crafternoon event. It’s the perfect excuse to spend time with family and friends and, even better, it’s a great way to boost your mental wellbeing.”

“It can be very rewarding and relaxing to create something from scratch. Every penny raised will make a huge difference.”
