“I’m working on a campaign here at Macmillan Cancer Support that aims to help cancer patients who are living in fuel poverty. People with cancer have high energy bills as they feel the cold more and often spend long periods of time at home during treatment or recovery. This comes at a time when their income usually drops because they’re not working. We’re hoping to raise awareness of this issue through our new digital ‘Infi-knit project’. All people need to do is tell Infi-knit, our knitting machine, what makes them feel warm and their bit of pattern will be knitted into a real life scarf. Web cams record the Infi-knit carrying out its unique stitch, so people can watch their bit of woolly petition being created.”
Excellent work Macmillan.
