Debbie and Kerry from South Hornchurch are two community heroes. The two friends have been crocheting away raising literally thousands for charity. They are the phantom ‘crocheters’ who leave their beautiful work across Havering to put a smile on people’s faces.
Recently on the Mungo Park Community group, locals were asking who it was that had made the beautiful artwork below, with the words ‘Be Kind’ on it as it had put a smile on everyone’s face.
Debbie and Kerry are the ladies behind these amazing creations.
Debbie told the Havering Daily: “We began crocheting about five years ago and started to make poppies to raise money for the British Legion in Elm Park. It went really well and we raised £600.
“We then started to do local fayres and events such as this to sell our crafts and it was a big success. We continued to do our poppies last year and it went bonkers really and we made £1200. We also made hero bears during the pandemic and the money we raised went to Captain Tom.”
The two ladies wanted to bring some happiness into our community and make others smile. “We started to make as many as we could in the evening and my husband would go out in the dark and leave them in different places in the hope that we can cheer people up. It has been a tough year but if we can make just one person smile, then we are happy.”
Well, Debbie and Kerry you have made our community smile as you are two amazing ladies and we thank you for what you are doing.
