To be able to provide each child in care in the south west a crochet toy or blanket.

by Victoria Higgins in Shirwell, England, United Kingdom

My best friend is a foster carer and has inspired me so much over the years not just by loving, caring and supporting every single child that comes through her door but from seeing first hand the positive impact she has on these children.

Due to my current position and disability myself and my partner are unable to foster at present so I would like to be able to give a gift to children within the care system currently in the southwest to be able to take with them from home to home and give them a sense of security.

There are over 90,000 children in care in the UK and Ireland. One child enters the UK care system every 15 minutes. What’s more, over half are victims of neglect or abuse. The money raised will be spent on yarn to produce blankets and toys.
