This post has been guest written by Jackie, Chair of Trustees from Knitted Knockers.
Who are we? We are a Registered UK Charity that supplies free of charge knitted knockers to ladies post Mastectomy and Lumpectomy surgery. An alternative to the prosthesis supplied, they are adjustable, washable, FREE, did I mention that? Ladies find them light and comfortable to wear. They are made from 100% cotton yarn to order by an authorised volunteer. Find us at www.knittedknockersuk.com on Twitter @knitknockersuk and https://www.facebook.com/knittedknockersuk?ref=aymt_homepage_panel
This is Kay the lady whose knocker order started the group in the UK when our founder, Jo, picked up her order via an American Knockers group.This was January 2014. After chatting they thought “ok why not start a UK group? and the rest as they say is history…
the charity became Registered in March this year 2015, a massive achievement.
Recently we have added a new Knocker to the range; we call it the Aqua. It is designed to be worn for water sports, ‘and also those lovely evenings lounging in a hot tub..these are made from one specific acrylic yarn, the UK ones are sent stuffed with bath scrunchies which do not hold the water as much as the normal stuffing does. Overseas orders are sent out unstuffed, but with clear instructions on what to do for the recipient to follow.
A big thank you to Gamers Giving back for including us this year in the ‘Event Pink Day in LA’ – on the day there will be a live interview with one of our recipients Debs and also one of the Trustees Lynne from Knitted Knockers UK.
