Beanie hat knitting project by Heacham group

The Heacham branch of a mental health charity is taking up a knitting project.

Mind Heacham Safe Haven's knitting to beat isolation group wants to raise awareness of men’s mental health by creating beanie hats for winter.

Norfolk and Waveney Mind recovery worker Jessica Andrews said: "Just over three out of four suicides are by men and suicide is the biggest cause of death for men under 35 in the UK right now.

"With this in mind, we want to raise awareness and give a little something to all our local boys working hard each day out there come rain or shine!

"This winter we will be knitting beanie hats for our local outdoor workers."

The group wants to hear from Lynn News readers wishing to join in or business owners who would like some hats as a donation.

It might even be possible to include a simple business logo or name on the hats.

The group has knitted 400 items for various causes in the last ten months, including twiddle mitts for people living with dementia or Alzheimer’s and colourful blankets and socks for end of life care patients.

Volunteer knitters or businesses wishing to request beanie hats should email jessica.andrews@norfolkandwaveneymind.org.uk
