Hailsham Memorial Institute has hit the Jackpot again. Knit & Natter is one of several local groups utilising the Institutes premises.
Knit & Natter meet weekly, Monday’s 2 – 4pm. But what a difference they are making to help others as also the HMI.
In only just a few months the group have knitted over 500 garments which will benefit disadvantaged children and blankets for the elderly in the UK and abroad.
Knit and Natter have now prepared and donated thousands of items to Computers for Charities who undertake distribution.
Computers for Charities, Chairman Simon Rooksby says: The contribution made by Knit & Natter cannot be understated.
It’s not just the thousands of items they have prepared year in year out, but the time given and costs involved for such quantities of wool to do the job.
Hence they would welcome any donations of double knit wool and of course new members to aid this very worthwhile cause.
More information regarding Knit & Natter Hailsham can be found on Facebook and also Computers for Charities
CfC is on the lookout for new premises a minimum of 4000sq feet of dry warehousing in the Hailsham – Eastbourne area is needed quite urgently. CfC is certainly not closing down and work continues as normal. I would welcome any contacts, suggestions and also a lot of help when the new place is found to make the move will certainly be very welcome. Thank you. Simon
Photos, email addresses wanted. It happens to us all and yes at Computers for Charities, catastrophe has struck hard with the loss of much data. Photos of the charity and all email contacts have been lost. If you can help us rebuild from anything you might have please get in touch or of course email. firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you.

Local Businesses do make a difference for Charities. Its a big thank you to local companies providing support in differing ways and providing invaluable support. Chilli Graphics, John Kimble Graphic Design & Chandlers BMW have all proved amazing as the CfC motorbike gets a new lease of life for 2017. As also Lanes Construction with support within the charities workshop to provide new & improved facilities. Well done and thank you. Simon

Thank you to Alejandro Manchon an
amazing EU Erasmus student from IES Abastos Vocational Training School, Valencia, Spain. Alejandro & Carles recieved 3 months work experience with CfC last year and were great. For many years we have sought to plan and raise funds for a mezzanine floor to improve facilities in the workshop. Through Crowd funding he raised over £2000 to start making it happen. Then bring in Lanes Construction Ltd of Hailsham to make and construct the steel work and phase 1 is finally complete… Phase 2 to build the walls and ceilings will provide more scope for the charities work and support…. Thank you and well done
