On Thursday 8th December, BBC Radio Leicester came to visit L4A whilst we were working with students from the University of Leicester at Harley House in Leicester. The festive craft activities were enjoyed by 9 older people, including a couple who have been married for 73 years! The report the radio team put together will be broadcast on BBC Radio Leicester from 11am today (13th December).
The activities were a fantastic example of recycling in action. They involved using waste industrial cotton spools (that we had reclaimed from the good folks at Jack Masters knitwear manufacturer) and wool (that had been previously used in the yarn bomb at the University of Leicester.
We were delighted to be interviewed for local radio and excited to listen to Fiona, residents and volunteers talking about our work.
It was a wonderful craft-ernoon for everyone involved. More information about the Yarn Bomb is available here.
