Crafty Uniforms

The amazing team at Crafty Uniforms were very busy last week preparing craft items to sell at Brothers of Charity Services England’s Health and Wellbeing event in Lancashire.

They had a fabulous display of crafty items including jewellery, fabrics, handmade greeting cards and lots more!

Everyone had a great time doing what they do best, sharing their skills and all of the great things the team at Crafty Uniforms get up to!

Crafty Uniforms received a lovely letter expressing gratitude for their support before Christmas when the team donated bags of stocking fillers to Home-Start to share out to their families.

The team would like to thank everyone at Home-Start for allowing us the opportunity to help and to Mr and Mrs Link for their kind donations that enabled this to happen.
