Hey! You’ve been #yarnbombing

21 Feb

Well now. All those blood droplets you knitted – well they joined 8,000 others as part of the new Blood doesn’t grow on Trees campaign to get more donors. And today they’ve been used at the start of a month long Yarnbombing event. You can see more on the NHS Blood donation Facebook page or http://blood.co.uk/trees

200,000 new blood donors are needed and I was really proud to represent all of you for TKOE today at the launch. And those droplets look fabulous. They are all over the country, indoors and outdoors. And it was brilliant to see people queueing up to register today. They especially need more young donors so please sign up if you haven’t already done so. Rosie needed 30 units just to stay alive, so it really is one way you can be a life saving hero.

I bet none of you ever thought you’d Yarnbomb! Here’s a picture

    Well, that’s a Yay moment, and no mistake. Well done us, and particularly well done Jo for galvanising the TKOE knitters. From the Gloucestershire Echo website :
