Fancy some craft this Christmas? Why not knit the NHS some hugs?

If you fancy some craft based goodness over the festive season (and beyond), why not knit some 'hugs' for our hard working NHS staff?

How do I knit a hug? Valid question. Follow this link to a pattern. It's achievable for beginners who can read patterns and will result a little knitted love heart. We keep a stock of these on board our buses and they provide a lovely little token of our appreciation to NHS staff. A small yet powerful gesture that we are thinking of those looking after us, especially during the festive season.

So if you fancy whipping out those needles or know someone who does, please consider knitting some hugs for the NHS. All you need to do is email info@projectwingman.co.uk to arrange logistics.
