Get Involved - Big Knit 2020

11th November 2020
Our Big Knit Fundraiser 2020 is now finished! We are thrilled to have raised £2,249 for the wonderful charity Cyrenians ...thanks to all who have helped with Knitting and made donations. 

During this year of the global pandemic Covid 19,  our music festival has been cancelled but we still want to raise funds for Cyrenians by asking for a donation (with or without one of the special knitted items) from everyone who has enjoyed our Perthshire Amber Festival in the past or our streamed Live Concerts during 2020. 

We’re so pleased to be helping The Cyrenians again in 2020. The Cyrenians, through their many really 'hands on' initiatives, are supporting people excluded from family, home, work or community on their life journey. Find out more about the great work they do www.cyrenians.scot 
A sincere and huge 'Thank You' to everyone who has knitted items for sale  and to those who year after year buy hats and other things. We couldn’t do it without you!
