A thank you for the Friday Group!
The Friday group knitted an great pile of hats and scarves for the Mission to Seafarers. https://
www.missiontoseafarers.org/ . They work with seafarers in ports around the UK and the world, providing practical and emotional support to whoever needs it. Seafarers may have boarded the merchant ships they are serving on with just the clothes they stood up in, in warm climates. Finding yourself in Felixstowe, say, in a freezing January can be a huge challenge. Our hats and scarves will, we hope, not only keep seafarers warm, but also remind them that, though they are far from home, people are thinking of them. Below is the letter of thanks I received today. Thank you to everyone who knitted!
