“Properly practiced, knitting soothes the troubled spirit, and it doesn't hurt the untroubled spirit either.” - Elizabeth Zimmermann

You can help seafarers all over the world by joining our amazing group of knitters! Every day we receive warm woolly hats, scarves and gloves from our fabulous knitters that are then sent to our centres around the country. Seafarers can take what they need to help see them through the long, cold days and nights spent on the open seas.

Each knitted item is a symbol of love and friendship that transcends language barriers and cultural differences. The item of clothing that you knit – the work of your hands will bring warmth, comfort and a token of your appreciation to men and women who supply us with all the things we use every day.
