Clevedon Crochet Corner have created twiddlemuffs to donate to Clevedon hospital demebtia patients.


Hundreds of twiddlemuffs have been donated to Clevedon’s hospital by a dedicated group of creative volunteers.

Clevedon Crochet Corner Social Group handed the items over to North Somerset Community Hospital to help dementia patients.

Twiddlemuffs are thick hand muffs with ribbons, bells, buttons and beads inside designed to stimulate people with restless hands.

The group have created so many twiddlemuffs they are now being offered to the public in exchange for a small donation of wool, buttons or ribbons.

Gemma Burchill, one of the organisers, said: “If anyone would like a twiddlemuff they would be very welcome to pop along to the crochet corner held at Clevedon Conservative Club every first Monday of the month to collect one.”
