Ross Greer MSP visited Knit for Unity: Across the Globe, today bringing a donation of wool from a knitting group at Bearsden Baptist Church.
Knit for Unity was founded in November 2015 as a direct response to the developing humanitarian crisis in the Eastern Mediterranean, making hats, scarves and blankets for people in desperate need. The group has been widely supported with donations of wool and finished items, and has distributed finished knitwear to people in Lesvos and Calais. They have also supported recent arrivals from Syria, young families supported by Home Start, and people using night shelters in Glasgow. Knit for Unity meets every Monday at Maryhill Integration Network.
