Charity Knitting for Alzheimer's Society


Do you knit for charity?
Want to be part of a Guinness World Record?

Please make your donation cheques out to: 
The Alzheimer's Society 


and send with your mice 
before October 2013 

to:

Libby Swindells, 
Mile of Mice, 
3 Wellgreen lodge, 
Wellfield lane, 
Hale, 
Altrincham 
WA15 8NW



I discovered this in the new issue of Knitting and Crochet Magazine and started researching it online.

If you're game for challenge, get involved with the Mile of Mice and contribute to the goal of 7000+ knitted mice to raise money (donate online) for the Alzheimer's Society
Get the pattern and more details here
Check out their main Facebook page here with lots of fabulous photos,too.
Do you fancy getting involved with raising money and being part of a UK Guinness Book of Records attempt? The Wellgreen Craft & Create group will be knitting mice (pattern on request) this year to hopefully make A Mile Of Mice. They will need as many people as possible to knit the mice (we need 7,600 approx) and of course people to sponsor the knitters.

My first mice...


For my lovely, beloved Dad;
himself a sufferer of this wretched terminal illness that has robbed him not only of his memories, but also of his speech, his ability to walk; dress; toilet 
and feed himself, his retirement and the things he loves to enjoy.



Ravelry knit-a-long page. if you want to take part you need to send in your mice as soon as you can so the organisers can keep track of how many they have.

    I'm really interested to see this item about the 'Mile of Mice' - I think I will need to get involved with this, especially as my brother has recently beed diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer's. Thanks for bringing it to my attention :-)
