Breast Cancer HavenPublished on February 15, 2019 By Meg 3 min read
Since their beginnings in 1997, Breast Cancer Haven have been on a mission to help support anyone affected by breast cancer. At Breast Cancer Haven people are people, not patients. It’s a place to talk, to listen, to be listened to, and to just be you.
At Breast Cancer Haven, the belief and common goal is that “no-one should have to face breast cancer alone” and this charity are doing everything they can to help women feel empowered, strong, and completely themselves throughout the hardships of cancer.
NEW Knitting & Crochet patterns for Breast Cancer Haven
Get making for Breast Cancer Haven
Each year here at LoveCrafts, some of our favorite independent designers create gorgeous patterns especially for Breast Cancer Haven. All proceeds from the pattern sales go to Breast Cancer Haven, so it's a brilliant way for you to directly support the amazing charity.
This year, we have tea accessories galore with tea cosies by Amanda Berry, Claire Montgomerie, and Sian Brown along with a tea cosy wrap from the legendary Debbie Bliss. Then with a gorgeous infinity scarf by Sue Rawlinson and a cosy hat by Anna Nikipirowicz to top it all off, there’s so much crocheting and knitting fun to be had!
The best thing about these patterns is that they’re all designed to be fantastic gifts for those who have breast cancer. So knit and crochet away and once you’ve finished, simply send your lovely homemade creations to Breast Cancer Haven and they’ll gift them to people who need them.
And every little donation makes a difference. One Breast Cancer visitor writes, "I picked up a hot water bottle cover before Christmas when it was particularly cold. It was beautiful. I thought it was very thoughtful that someone had spent all that time making that, it must have been very time consuming and made me feel very special knowing someone has spent their time making it for someone going through breast cancer."
The Big Tea Cosy
Every year when March (ahem, spring!) rolls around, Breast Cancer Haven host their huge fundraising campaign, The Big Tea Cosy. The Big Tea Cosy is about raising funds so Breast Cancer Haven can continue their wonderful work in the breast cancer community, and raising awareness of the difficulties of facing breast cancer.
We know you're someone special. Someone strong. Someone loved. Sometimes that person can get lost during cancer treatment. We're determined not to let that happen - we'll do whatever it takes to help you find her again.”
How can I help? Host your own Tea Cosy!
If you’re looking to help Breast Cancer Haven continue on their mission, then you can easily host your own Big Tea Cosy event. All you need to do is host a get together with friends, family, cake, and yarn galore, and spend the day raising funds for this important cause.
