Elkesley Craft Group meets weekly in the village with the focus on friendship and a range of crafts such as sewing, toy-making, crochet, knitting and machine embroidery.

They run four charity fundraising events through the year with the emphasis on local causes. In December the group held a coffee morning which raised over £300 to support From the Heart and Now Church, charities which provided over 300 children with Christmas presents and supported the food bank.

On Saturday 2nd April, from 10.00am to 12.00pm, another coffee morning will be held in the village hall to raise funds for Autism East Midlands. Handcrafted gifts, tea, coffee and homemade cakes will be available as well as a tombola, raffle, face painting and lots of fun!

Please go along, join in the fun and support a great cause. For more information, please ring Mandy on 07598 715417.
