WB​FE Is Born

During Covid-19, Tonee Holley Knowles and Sue Bardsley started making blankets from donations of excess fabrics, as well as re-inventing old unused wool​len blankets. These items were distributed to numerous local charity organisations. Unused, often wasted products, are being re-birthed for positive use, avoiding their journey to landfill. 


Within five months Tonee and Sue, and their band of fabulous volunteer sewers have distributed over 1000 blankets. Warm Blankets For Everyone have recruited donations of fabric from anywhere and everywhere. Cupboards and garages are being cleared of unused goods. Goods are being re-purposed to benefit social needs and not dumped into landfill.


The Belmont Baptist Community Care have shown its support, offering WBFE a facility to store fabrics and sew blankets. In this relationship, WBFE are distributing their Goods360 along with the blankets. During Covid, it was necessary for our sewers to collect prepared “kits” (two pieces of fabric pinned ​together) to sew at home.

With local community support, our charity will grow. Radio interviews and guest speaking assignments will promote our project, recruit fabrics and blankets, and raise funds.
