Crafting for a cause

Vicky Ball writes

I am a member of a craft group who meets monthly to swap craft ideas and skills and encourage each other to try new crafts. Our aim is to use these skills and our home-made items to raise money for all sorts of good causes.

Our current craft is crocheting with plastic bags to make waterproof groundsheets/mats for the homeless. The idea came from You Tube and when we saw how practical these mats are, we were all enthused to have a go and my mat is shown in the photograph. We will take them to a Norwich based shelter to distribute and hope they keep lots of people drier and warmer during the winter months.
