Stitch and Fighting the Big C
S&B Londoners have always thought that cancer was really rubbish. We’ve been helping battle it since day one with our knits. There was our London Lion Scarf and our Blanket for Breast Cancer. And now we’re Racing for Life because cancer just can’t seem to take the hint.
Tina ‘Wickedwoollywitch’ Bragaglia is doing the Race for Life (bright red stick and all) in memory of her brother. You can see her sponsor page here. We thought that was rather fabulous and couldn’t let her race alone.
So inspired by Tina, and other teams such as Socktopus and IKnit , we at S&B London are joining in Race for Life too. We’re joining the event on the 6th of May at 7pm in Battersea Park (so no time off work or weekends taken up required).
Join Team S&B London:
The race is on the 6th of May at 7pm in Battersea Park. We’d love you to join us whether you help us raise a little or a lot.
To sign up just drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll sign you up (there’s a £2 each admin fee from the site).
We’ll be racing in a group at a walking pace to make sure some of us less gazelle-like members don’t walk on their own.
Sponsor Team S&B London:

if you can’t join in the Race.
Almost FREE woolly hat patterns:
Because Cancer Research is about those who are fighting, as well as those we have sadly lost, we’re going to be knitting chemo caps as we go (knitting as you walk is optional). The caps will be donated to various cancer wards across London.
S&B London are offering two fabulous chemo cap patterns for a minimum £2 donation (give more if you like). To donate and download the patterns click here.
Just hop along to our blog page here, use the link to donate as much as you like, then download the patterns.
Sponsor or join Tina:
For those of you who know the fabulousness that is Tina you can sponsor her here or contact her to join her team.
