THE ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING WAS HELD ON THURSDAY, OCTOBER 24TH. AND WAS FOLLOWED BY THE VOLUNTEER APPRECIATION LUNCHEON.

In September we distributed our completed blankets to agencies in London and the surrounding area. Over 900 blankets were given away this month - 6 agencies attended the night meeting and 12 agencies attended the day meeting.

Thanks to all the representatives from the agencies for sharing the histories of the agencies and providing insight into the effect our blankets have on the recipients.

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.
