We have now received the first donation from the proceeds of the Lovelock scarf. We would like to say a big thank you to Claire Mountain who has donated the proceeds totalling £277.60 for sales in March! This contribution really does make a difference and will help us to save lives!
More details on the production of the Lovelock scarf and how to get yours can be found below…
Pattern designer Clare, from Sister Mountain, developed a knitting pattern to sell to raise money for us after losing her friend to suicide. The scarf will mark her friend’s life and we hope that by celebrating her life we can offer hope to others who are struggling.
All of the proceeds from pattern sales of the Lovelock scarf will be donated to Harmless. We were chosen by the bereaved family as we are an organisation where all proceeds go directly towards saving lives, so that no one else faces such a tragic loss.
The lovelock scarf is both tragic and hopeful, and a simple way that we can pass on the love and warmth of an item of clothing to people feeling lost and alone and desperate whilst raising hope, awareness end funds for our vital work.

“I like to think of the Lovelock scarf as a hug to someone who needs it: a physical act of wrapping yourself or someone you care about in love. By purchasing this scarf pattern, not only will you be able to knit something comforting and beautiful for yourself (knitting is most definitely self-care, don’t you agree?) but you will also be helping Harmless to provide comfort to those who desperately need it”.
If you can help us and knit us a very special scarf or would like to know more, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We will also be auctioning some of the amazing scarves to add to the fundraising.
