From Live Life Aberdeenshire –

Do you or your friends like to knit? You could help some of the most vulnerable in our society this winter by contributing knitted garments to help keep them warm.

Live Life Aberdeenshire has teamed up with colleagues in Aberdeenshire Community Planning to launch the initiative.

It’s a chance for people in Stonehaven to be kind to others in a time of need, with donations of knitted or crocheted items such as hats, scarves, lap blankets, pairs of socks or gloves in any colours or sizes being sought. 

The items will then be gifted to someone who would benefit from a Cosy Bosie to help them get through the colder months ahead.

Community groups who can help co-ordinate the distribution of Cosy Bosies in Aberdeenshire are also encouraged to get in touch. 

Donations of knitted items can be made by booking a time slot at one of the library service’s Click and Collect locations. See: https://bit.ly/CnCLLA  

If you’re a community group who would like to get involved please email libraries@aberdeenshire.gov.uk and a member of the project team will be in touch.
