My story

[p]Celebrating Key Workers & Covid-19 Heroes[/p][p]The Secret Society of Hertford Crafters members have been busy making different key workers (more [/p][p]than 85 so far) who are supporting the nation during the Covid-19 pandemic. We wanted to find a [/p][p]way to celebrate the work they do and to thank them in some small way. [/p][p]Every day, starting Monday 13th April 2020, we are posting a photo of a different key worker / hero on [/p][p]Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, together with a little story about them.[/p][p]Many of our 130-strong yarnbombing community have helped to make our figures; some [/p][p]are crocheted and knitted, others have fabric outfits and some logos are beautifully embroidered.[/p][p]In addition to creating a little spark of joy during this difficult time, we are pleased to be raising funds for two Hertfordshire charities: Citizens Advice Bureau – East Herts and Carers in Hertfordshire:[/p][p]Both these charities are trying to continue their valuable community work by asking their volunteers to work from home. They require urgent funds to give their volunteers the necessary technology and support, to enable them to continue their work.[/p][p]Citizens Advice Bureau is providing advice on a huge range of legal, financial and emotional issues resulting from Covid-19, and where necessary directing people to other organisations that can help them such as the food banks.[/p][p]Carers in Herts are establishing a "keep in touch" telephone scheme starting with the most vulnerable in the community with the aim of extending this as widely as possible.

Amazing work yet again from the Yarn Bombers to raise awareness of the important work being done by so many different people while raising funds for good local causes and putting smiles on all of our faces during these tough times. Thank you!
