Winston’s Wish are an amazing charity who help bereaved children re-adjust to life after the death of a parent or sibling, offering practical support and guidance. Winston’s Wish have helped many families within our Woolly Hugs and Mumsnet communities, and we are very pleased to be able to do something to help them now.

Up and down the country, fabulous folk have been making small craft items which we will sell through our Facebook Event page. Come and join us!

Our Sale takes place over the weekend starting Friday 6th December, starting at 10 am finishing on Sunday 8th

From 10am on Friday we are going to post batches of items on the wall, starting with the first 30 from Album One and work our way through.
