Knit a tank top

I’ve just heard about this charity challenge which is running until the end of July. Knit a tank top is raising money for Blind Veterans UK, by encouraging crafty people to create enough 8″ x 8″ knit and crochet squares together to make a jumper for a tank which will be at the Shoreham Airshow this summer. knit a tank top blind veterans uk

Once you register, you are committing to make a minimum of one square or a maximum of 20. While you don’t have to fundraise, if you do raise over £30 you will get a nice tote bag with the knitted tank logo on it.

This is a proper local event to Sussex (although it seems to be worldwide if you want to take part), and it is for a great charity. Blind Veterans UK works with veterans of all ages with sight loss – providing practical support, training and help, respite care and holidays. One of their big residential centres is near Brighton, but they have two other ones as well. Shoreham Air Show is also a huge local event which takes place every August (although I must confess, we normally end up at the Airbourne air show in Eastbourne).
