One of the new clubs launched at Herne Bay High this year, Crochet Club, has gone from strength to strength and the students are currently busy making poppies and friendship bracelets to raise money for the Royal British Legion’s annual Poppy Appeal.
Most of the students have only been crocheting for four weeks and have already mastered the skills necessary to make the poppies, some of which have already been sold, with Year 8 student, Robert, raising £42 towards the cause.
Crochet Club leader, Miss Reece, said “I’m really proud of the progress that the students have made over the past month and to see how quickly they’ve picked up the advanced skills required to make the poppies is just wonderful.”
The Crochet Club will continue to make more poppies over half term and during the first week back and these will be sold to our school community and members of the public via main reception with all proceeds going to the RBL Poppy Appeal. They are also keen for members of the public to join them in their challenge and either make poppies at home to bring in or donate some red or black wool so they can continue to craft these wonderful items.
Any donations of yarn or crochet accessories would be very welcome for next term when they will be making Christmas gifts, toys and decorations.
We wish them well in their challenge and look forward to seeing how much they raise for the Poppy Appeal.
