Each year the Guardian Angel Knitting Program encourages knitters of all levels to pick up knitting needles, hone their skills and donate their woollen creations to Australians in need. Now in it’s 14th year, the Guardian Angel Knitting Program is running throughout the winter months from June to August. Knitted items include clothes, blankets, scarves, beanies and other garments.
Guardian Pharmacy has once again partnered with Variety – the Children’s Charity, a national not-for profit organisation empowering children who are sick, disadvantaged or have special needs. Spotlight has also joined the campaign as a partner, supplying patterns and discounts on wool through the 2012 Guardian Angel Knitting Book.
People wanting to become a ‘Guardian Angel’ can visit their local Guardian Pharmacy to pick up a free pattern book, with step-by-step instructions for a number of different garments to knit.
