"Knit and Knatter" assistant
About the opportunity A group of residents would like to learn how to knit and others would like to further develop thier skills. All we ask of volunteers is for them to sit with the residents individually and sometimes as a group, have a drink, chat and knit away. Knitting becomes fun when shared and when others are around to motivate the residents and that's where you come in.
