Michelle and Simon, proprietors of Madley Plants have the basket on display in the café area where, hopefully it will become a talking point for visitors. The craft group hope that the display will encourage people to go to the FREE exhibition in November.

MADLEY CRAFT GROUP AND CHARITY

Over the last 13 years we have supported a number of charities with bring and buy coffee mornings, donations from our monthly raffle and making all sorts of items.

To date we have given £6,568 in actual donations and have made clothes for premature babies both in Hereford and also in Tanzania, knitted teddies for the local police to use in road safety talks with young children and in connection with abused children and for the County Hospital for children facing painful treatment.  We have also made fiddle lap quilts and twiddle muffs for dementia patients, tea cosies, sock monkeys and many other items.

Find photos of some of our charity events and things we have made in the photos section.
