Helen's Great Yarn Giveaway

Helen Kurtz is holding a Great Yarn Giveaway to raise money for the British Heart Foundation. The charity, which Helen holds dear following the passing of her late husband in 2016, carries out vital research into prevention and survival activity to ensure quality care and support for everyone living with heart disease.

Last year, Helen took part in the Great North Run and Yorkshire 10 Mile Event and raised £4000 for the charity. This year, two of Helen’s friends, Julia and Charlotte are running the Brighton Marathon in memory of Helen’s husband in order to raise funds and to support them Helen has also launched a giveaway via her JustGiving page. The giveaway which initially had a fundraising target of £1000 has already surpassed £4000 and donations are still flooding in with the new target set at £4750. There are over 100 yarny prizes on offer donated from dyers, yarn shops and etsy sellers ranging from skeins of yarn to essential tools, gift vouchers and e-books.The entire woolly community is backing Helen on her mission and we are too!

All you need to do to be in with a chance of winning one of the amazing prizes on offer is visit Helen’s JustGiving page and make a donation of £2 which will go directly to the British Heart Foundation. Please make sure when donating to tick the box alongside ‘I’m happy to be contacted by’ so that if you’re one of the lucky winners Helen and her team will be able to get in touch. The giveaway will be running until the end of April which means there’s still plenty of time to show your support.
