Generous West Leeds residents are rallying to support people in war-stricken Ukraine.
The Hookers & Clickers (Do It For Charity) knitting and crochet group group meets regularly at Kirkstall Forge, making for UK and international charities
Joanne Brophy, from Bramley, put a call out on the “group members” page over the weekend for donations to help Ukrainian families – and as of yesterday members had raised more than £1,200, and counting. She said:
“These wonderful ladies who put love into every stitch of everything they make are the most kind, caring, generous ladies and I am so proud of them all.
“We are collecting through our PayPal account Hookersandclickers@gmail.com. If you’d like to add to it please do & add reference “SWU”. We will choose the best way to use it to benefit the Ukrainian families that need it right now and will let you know how, of course.”
Kirkstall Valley Development Trust (KVDT) has also said it will accept donations of children’s and women’s clothing, toys, sleeping bags, nappies and toiletries etc at its base at Flexspace on Burley Road, Burley.
