I’ve tried card-making, candle-making, cross-stitch, sewing little decorations out of felt – you name it, I’ve probably had a go. The one thing they all have in common for me is a sense of satisfaction, feeling productive and also acting as a distraction when needed. All of which is really important for maintaining or boosting my mental health.

Is it for me?

Of course! Anyone can be creative and our Crafternoon pack includes crafting ideas for beginners right up to advanced crafters.

Fundraising is easy, too - the simpliest ways of raising money are usually the most effective.
