Dear Parents and Caregivers I hope you and your family have remained safe and dry…
The SPCA need knitted mice!
If you are looking for something creative to do with the family during the school holidays, that will also help animals in need, this is perfect!
We will be running a free workshop at Rutherford College on Wednesday, 9 October 2019 at 10am to 12:30pm. You will learn how to knit a mouse that will then be donated to the SPCA. All you need to bring are 4mm needles and any old wool you may have laying around the house you are willing to donate. If you don’t have wool, don’t worry, wool will be supplied.
The course is suitable for beginners as well as those who already have knitting experience and would like help. There is no age restriction however, children under 13yrs need to be accompanied by an adult.
Bookings are essential.

We are hoping that once you learn this skill you will continue to knit a few extra mice at home to donate to the SPCA and maybe teach other friends and family also.
The SPCA like to give every cat and kitten that comes into their care their very own knitted mouse to play with and keep. This mouse will be with them throughout their stay at SPCA and will go with them to their new forever home!
They are so appreciative of the ones people make for them, but sadly they are running out!
