Arty-Folks Fundraiser for UNICEF Children of Ukraine
EVERYONE WELCOME!  Join us on Sunday 8th of May 7pm-8pm and we will show you how to create a spiritual object in the colours of the Ukraine Flag.
We will come together (on zoom) and weave a protective charm with coloured yarn and sticks called ‘God’s Eye’ which we hope you will then hang on a tree.

Take part in the workshop and make a donation because….
More than half of Ukraine’s 7.5 million children have now been forced to flee the ongoing violence. Homes, schools, water supplies and hospitals have been damaged or destroyed. Children have been separated from their families, and hundreds of thousands of people have been left without clean water, food or electricity. Explosives are a daily threat to children’s lives.

UNICEF are working around the clock in Ukraine and at the borders of neighbouring countries, providing access to clean water, health care services and other critical support.  As the refugee crisis grows, their teams in Poland, Moldova, Belarus, Romania, Slovakia, Hungary and Czech Republic are providing humanitarian aid for children and families on the move.

We are marking the start of Mental Health Awareness Week with this free online workshop and we hope you will donate £10 to Arty-Folks’ UNICEF fundraiser.  We want EVERYONE to create a visible reminder that we are One World, that we care and look out for each other.  Let’s do what we can to help children and families displaced by this senseless war!

What you will need for the workshop:
– 2 thin sticks/branches/skewers
– yellow and blue wool (or use white wool/string and paint it yellow&blue later)
– 1 empty aluminium can
– scissors
– feathers are optional
– Zoom on your device and good internet

This workshop is suitable for young and old and all abilities.

We want to raise at least £500 for UNICEF children of Ukraine appeal who are most in need of our support and protection.
We recommend donating £10 but you can donate as little or as much as you can afford.
