Wool amnesty


Wool amnesty


Do you have spare balls of wool? Perhaps you have oddments left over from a garment you've made?

We host a group of local knitters who use leftover or spare wool to make garments for charities. We'd love it if you could donate any yarn you no longer need.

The first Tuesday of every month

10am - 12 noon
Haberdashery department

Please feel free to drop in with your wool; bring your needles too if you'd like to join in the knitting.

Supporting our communities

Our aims

We're proud of the close links we forge between our Partners and local schools, charities and organisations. And wherever we do business, at home or abroad, we work with communities to make a difference. That's why:

  • Our Community Matters programme in our shops continues to support local charities and community groups.
  • We aim to give at least 1% of pre-tax profits to community initiatives.
  • We will continue to seek out projects that support the John Lewis Foundation at home and abroad.

If you'd like to nominate a good cause for Community Matters please complete the nomination form and take it to the Customer Services department.



The charities we're supporting from November 2015 – January 2016 are:

  • Parkinson's UK (Newcastle)
  • Headway
  • Age UK

This is how August - October Community Matters' charities benefited from being part of the scheme:

  • Amble Lifeboats received £1080
  • South Tyneside Paediatric Diabetes Support Groupreceived £900
  • Blood Bikes received £1020
