My story

[p]Celebrating Key Workers & Covid-19 Heroes and making Fabric Face Masks[/p][p]The Secret Society of Hertford Crafters members have been busy making different key workers - 103 now, who are supporting the nation during the Covid-19 pandemic. We wanted to find a way to celebrate the work they do and to thank them in some small way. Every day, starting Monday 13th April 2020, we posted a photo of a different key worker / hero on social media.[/p][p]Many of our 130-strong yarnbombing community are also making fabric face coverings which we have been donating to care homes who were struggling to get PPE and are now exchanging them for donations to these charities.[/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.
