Louth’s branch of Norwich and Peterborough Building Society is knitting together a relationship with charity A Good Yarn.

This relationship has been formed in a bid to help and support the elderly members of the local community.

The Louth branch have made a donation of £150 to ‘A Good Yarn’ a charity that reaches out to people who are vulnerable, isolated, hard of hearing or those what have suffered a bereavement and brings them together through a knitting class.

Claire Ravenscroft mananger of N&P’s Louth branch said: “One of the organisers for ‘A Good Yarn’ is a customer of the branch and we got chatting about the group and about the wonderful work they do.

“Myself and my team wanted to find some way to support such a good cause and we came up with the donation to buy the new items.

“We’re really pleased we’ve been able to help and hope the donation will go towards helping people come together over their love of knitting.”

The class gives people the chance to learn new creative skills such as crochet, knitting or sewing whilst socialising with others in a similar situation at the class held in their local church.

All creations made through the class are then donated to other local charities.

The organisers of the class are all volunteers.
