Baa Baa Brighouse has decided that because, like most, we feel unable to influence social, political or economic change in any significant way, it can instead take care of its own very small corner of the world.
In 2019, we will be releasing a monthly charity yarn where £3 of every skein sold will go to a chosen charity (this too will change on a month by month basis to enable us to help more deserving causes).
Our chosen charity for January will be Tourettes Action in recognition of our daughter, Florence, who suffers with tics due to severe anxiety at school.
Tourettes Action aims to support children like Florence in the classroom, train behavioural therapists, pay for support group meetings and provide resources to schools so that they can better assist youngsters with tics and tourettes in managing their condition.
We will launch “Tics Don’t Define Me”, a 100% British Bluefaced Leicester DK yarn at 12 noon GMT on New Year’s Day, Tuesday January 1st.
