Knit for North Yorkshire

We are looking for people to help knit as many scarves as possible this winter.

We are hoping to collect 1,000 scarves. They can be any size, any pattern, knitted or crochet. We’ll even accept the occasional snood or shawl.

Once collected, they will go to Age UK, food banks, and various homelessness charities who will distribute them to the people they work with.

Get in touch

Let us know if you’ve started knitting or go to a knit and natter group that want to be involved.

Get in touch with us via email radioyork@bbc.co.uk or call 01904 641351 (reception open Monday-Friday until 1pm).

Get involved

Get your scarves to us before midday on Saturday 16 December.

You can drop your scarves off directly to our studios: BBC Radio York, 20 Bootham Row, York, YO30 7BR.
