The Crochet Club of London won the Pillar Community Impact Award!
MARCH 29, 2019

We were honoured to have been among the three finalists for this prestigious Award, and are thrilled to have won!

The Award was presented at Museum London on November 12th, 2008, and it included a financial gift of $2,500.

(We shall use the money over the course of the year for the purchase of yarn with which to make even lovelier blankets!)

The mission of the Crochet Club of London is to provide crocheted blankets/afghans to organizations that assist people in need, and to individuals such as fire victims, in and around London, Ontario. The Crochet Club also makes blankets/afghans for local organizations that help animals in need. Crochet Club blankets are never sold, they are donated to local charitable organizations in our community.
