WANT TO TAKE ON A KNITTING CHALLENGE IN MARCH?
This March, join our amazing community of knitters taking on this challenge. Around 10 million people in the UK are living with arthritis. It can affect people of all ages - even children and teenagers. Living with arthritis can be challenging - chronic pain can make everyday tasks, like making a cup of tea, really difficult. It is often dismissed, and this can lead to isolation and frustration. Join our community, coming together to make lives better.

The March Knitting Challenge is a fundraising challenge which you can make your own. Simply set your own target of how much you want to knit throughout the month and join thousands of others taking part in the March Knitting Challenge 2023.

Proudly supported by Dunelm
The March Knitting Challenge proud to be supported by Dunelm and their Knit and Stitch community - They will be hosting their instore groups at various times this month to support those living with arthritis by joining the fundraising challenge. These groups are a brilliant chance to meet up with likeminded knitters and crocheters and have a good old knit and natter (they'll even give you a free tea/coffee!) and even a chance to win their raffle.
