A new campaign is calling for crafty people to help Aberdeen’s homeless.
Aberdeen Yarn Fest, in partnership with Shelter Scotland, Aberdeen Cyrenians, Aberdeen Foyer and Social Bite, seeks knitting and crafting enthusiasts to make garments to distribute to those in need as part of the Wool For Warmth campaign.
The initiative will run until June 9 when the event takes place at the DoubleTree Hilton in Aberdeen.

Vanessa Wilhelm, community and events fundraiser at Aberdeen Cyrenians, said: “We are extremely proud of the services we deliver for those who are homeless or have been affected by homelessness in any way.”
