Host your event anytime in September

Many of us have been spending a lot more time at home to help limit the spread of coronavirus and keep us safe. To look after our wellbeing, there are lots of activities we can do without going out that are fun and help us feel good - including crafting!

That's why we're inviting you to host a Virtual Crafternoon at home.

Get together online with your favourite people and spend an afternoon doing some crafting. Set up a fundraising page online and ask your guests to make a donation for North Staffs Mind to take part. Enjoy a get-together with a difference and help make sure no one in North Staffs has to face a mental health problem alone.

If you're not confident in running your own Virtual Crafternoon, there are different ways to get involved. You could also:
  • Do a craft independently and donate yourself or ask friends and family to donate.
  • Craft and sell or give away your items to friends and family for donations.
All you need to do is download our step-by-step guide which will tell you everything you need to know.

We've more about these options in our 'Do your own thing and crafty ideas pack'. Along with details of where to find template, including making your own facemask and recycled and reusable shopping bags!

If you've got any questions, we'd love to hear from you. Send us an email at
