It was a while ago when we contacted Justice First after seeing a tweet of theirs asking for fabric donations for their Peace Blanket project. As we are both crafty people we have accumulated a vast amount of fabric over the years. So, we decided to donate our unused fabric to Justice First, a Stockton-on-Tees based charity who help those seeking refugee status in the Tees Valley.
As Charlotte from the charity explained to us, the Peace Blanket will be made up of individual squares, made by the refugee community on Teesside, and supporters of the project. The squares will say what ‘peace’ means to that person. When complete it will be displayed in various places across Teesside.
