At Versus Arthritis, we’re excited to announce that we’re working alongside Dunelm and their incredible Stitch and Knit Communities to support the March Knitting Challenge and you can get involved!

Arthritis affects 1 in 6 people living in the UK. It isn’t just aches and pains of old age – it can affect any one at any time in their life. Living with arthritis is challenging – chronic pain making everyday tasks such as making a cup of tea, or getting up for work, debilitating. Join our March Knitting Community and attend a local Dunelm event and together, we can make the lives of those living with arthritis better.
