September 2021: Thank you for considering knitting or sewing for Knit-for-Nowt.  We now accept only therapy hand puppets and worry monsters.  Please note that we can only take items that are brand new, hand or machine knitted, crocheted or sewn with material, and in good, clean condition.



We need a constant supply of hand and finger puppets in adult hand sizes, used by workers for therapy with children suffering from abuse, neglect,bereavement, or other worries.

Or could you knit some "Worry Monsters" for child therapy?  If you've never tried, please have a go - they're so easy and fun too!

NO THANKS: no clothing, blankets, dolls, toys, or any other items which are not puppets or monsters. 


Please CLICK HERE to contact us with brief details of your completed items.  We will then get back to you with posting details. We regret that we are unable to refund the cost of postage or materials.  We're also sorry that funding and time won't allow for us to collect items, except under special arrangements. 


Please always include your name and email address with items.
