Can you knit for a kit?
All our Chemo Care Kits are distributed with the inclusion of a lovely pair of hand-knitted socks or slippers to help keep those tootsies toasty!
For this, Raise The Gong seek regular donation of knitted socks or scarves, or beanies, or even hot water bottle covers. We're more than happy to accept anything you may be able to create - knowing that there is something hand-made within each kit makes it just that little bit more personal.
Over 600 kits are distributed each year, so if you're a nifty knitters or clever crocheters, please consider putting your needles together for a great cause! We need knitted items all year round.
We have pick-up and drop-off points in Wollongong, Warrawong, Unanderra, Shellharbour and Lake Illawarra or items can be posted to Raise The Gong, P. O. Box 1893, Wollongong NSW 2500. Email us for more info.
