Description

πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡¦Stand By Me – dyed to order πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡¦

You may or may not know, but I am sponsoring a mother and her three children who are fleeing the war in Ukraine. They are from Kharkiv region which has been all but destroyed by Russia. It’s been a very long three weeks since we applied for their visas, but I am happy to say, I collected them from Heathrow yesterday and they are now here with us. πŸ’™πŸ’›

Maria, Sofiia, Nikita and Anastasia are obviously extremely traumatised, having left their father and everything they have ever known behind, but I am struck by their courage and bravery. Sofiia is 19 and is studying English at University, and as most of her course has been online due to COVID she is continuing her studies whilst here. Nikita is 10 and he loves football and Xbox so has been playing with my boys,  and Anastasia is 5 and is a tomboy in pink. They have been playing football in the garden and I am told it is the first time they have giggled in months…

So, until they find their feet, I want to ask for your help… I dyed up this colourway this week because I want to make them all something, but it occurred to me that I coudl sell it and give all of the money to Maria so that she is able to buy her own things. I will dye it to order, and I will bear the cost of the yarn so 100% of your money will go straight to Maria, or other families who are fleeing the war. There are 6 families arriving in our little village and Salisbury has set up a hub for the hundreds of refugees that will be arriving in the coming weeks.

It should go without saying but please do not use voucher codes on this yarn. I can’t edit all of the voucher codes, as there are so many outstanding. If you are buying this yarn with other yarns and are using a voucher code, please checkout separately for this yarn and I will refund the excess postage.
