volunteers complete making ponchosThe ponchos we have made for refugees so far have proved very successful, so we’re making more! We hope to make a batch of 600 by the end of February for distribution in Calais and Northern France, so we need your help!

This will be the final poncho making session for this batch, and we will also be making crafts out of the offcuts from previous sessions. If you would like to attend please contact Carol on carolholloway1@hotmail.com

No previous experience is necessary, but if you have of the following please bring them: sewing machine, extension lead, scissors, unpickers, tailors chalk, tape measure, black or grey thread, pin cushion, food and drink to share. We’d suggest you label your stuff with your name so you can find it again at the end of the evening!

If you are unable to attend a session but have a sewing machine we could borrow, or have any other questions, please email us at ponchos@camcrag.org.uk

We’ll also be holding poncho making sessions every day at Cambridge Artworks from Friday 9 to Friday 16 February, starting at 10am except Fridays when they will start at 11am: See camcrag.org.uk/event/poncho-group-sewing-sessions for more information.

If you can’t make any of the sessions, and you’ve got a sewing machine, you can always make ponchos at home – get in touch via ponchos@camcrag.org.uk and we’ll send you more information.
