Live Life Aberdeenshire has teamed up with colleagues in Aberdeenshire Community Planning to launch the Knit a Cosy Bosie initiative to help spread some warmth in communities this winter.

The Cosy Bosie project is taking place across Aberdeenshire.
The Cosy Bosie project is taking place across Aberdeenshire.

Some of the most vulnerable in our society could be helped this winter by contributions of knitted garments to help keep them warm.

The Knit a Cosy Bosie project is a chance for people to be kind to others in a time of need, with donations of knitted or crocheted items such as hats, scarves, lap blankets, pairs of socks or gloves in any colours or sizes being sought.

The items will then be gifted to someone who would benefit from a Cosy Bosie to help them get through the colder months ahead.

Community groups who can help co-ordinate the distribution of Cosy Bosies in Aberdeenshire are also encouraged to get in touch.

Donations of knitted items can be made by booking a time slot at one of the library service’s Click and Collect locations via https://bit.ly/CnCLLA .

If you’re a community group who would like to get involved please email libraries@aberdeenshire.gov.uk and a member of the project team will be in touch.
