Get Quilting with Crafter’s Companion for Project Linus

I am literally so excited to share this with you guys. A brilliant reason to get crafting, as if we need an excuse! All for a cause that when I heard about it made me feel all the feelings. Project Linus.

Project Linus is a volunteer organisation which aims to provide a sense of security and comfort to sick and traumatised babies, children and teenagers through the provision of new home made patchwork quilts and knitted/crocheted blankets.  In doing so it gives volunteers across the UK the opportunity to contribute to their local community.

Sandringham setting for Butterfly Walk fundraiser

The Benjamin Foundation’s annual Butterfly Walk on Sunday 25th June

East Anglian charity, The Benjamin Foundation, will hold its fourth annual Butterfly Walk at Sandringham Country Park on Sunday 25th June.

The Walk will follow one of Sandringham’s trails, and is around three miles long, meandering through the Country Park’s historic woodland. Quiz questions are posted along the route, providing added fun for adults and children, with prizes for the best set of answers in each age group up for grabs at the end of the Walk. Within the Country Park there are plenty of perfect picnic spots, a large children’s play area, restaurant, gift shop and a farmers’ market, so a lovely day out for the whole family.
