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

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 May 2015 – July 2015 are:

  • Maghull in Bloom - A community group who have come together to turn Maghull village into a floral oasis to raise pride in the area and draw in visitors.
  • The Open Door Centre - The Open Door Centre aims to take mental health support directly to those who need it, many of whom would otherwise be unwilling or reluctant to seek it for themselves. The service is designed in a way which is at odds with the traditional 'clinical' approaches which have for too long been the sole avenue for young people in the area.
  • The Bombed Out Church - Previously a church but was bombed in the 1941 blitz. It now stands as a memorial to those who were lost in the war, and is also a venue for community exhibitions and events.

This is how February 2015 - April 2015 Community Matters' charities benefited from being part of the scheme:

  • Rotunda received £1300
  • Mencap received £850
  • Wirral narrow boat received £850
