Join our #crochetkind Blanket of Hugs raffle to fundraise for the Little Princess Trust

Simply Crochet Little Princess charity blanket of hugs

We’re helping to raise funds for the Little Princess Trust, as part of the #crochetkind campaign. If you donate on our JustGiving page you have the chance to win one of the original seven Blanket of Hugs, lovingly handmade by members of the #crochetkind community.

The Blanket of Hugs project was the brainchild of crochet designer and blogger Kate Eastwood (@justpootling), who wanted to make a blanket for a young woman, Jenny, waging a long battle with cancer. The idea was to give her a blanket of love and support so she knew she wasn’t alone. Kate designed three crochet squares and asked others to follow the patterns and donate what they’d made. In total, Kate received over 1,000 squares – enough for not one but seven beautiful blankets!

The first blanket was given to Jenny, and the rest are being auctioned off to raise money for charities close to Jenny’s heart. We’re fundraising for the Little Princess Trust, a UK-based charity that provides real hair wigs for children suffering with hair loss.

Everyone who makes a donation will qualify for a raffle ticket – there’s no minimum donation, as every penny counts. If you’d also like to enter the competition to win the Blanket of Hugs, please fill in your details on the entry form – you can find out more information about the Little Princess Trust here, and the link to enter is on our JustGiving donation page.

The entry form will close on Wednesday 26th April 2017 at 11.59pm BST.
