Knit a mini Percy the Pigeon
Percy the Pigeon is a character from my children’s novel – Matty-boy & the Secret Pigeon Racket, to encourage a child that they are not alone if they are being bullied.
Be a part of our campaign and made a difference to a child
We are also asking knitters to join our campaign by donating their knitted Percy the Pigeons to their local schools, ot youth groups, to spread Percy’s important message – ‘Please tell someone if you are being bullied.’
My aim is to raise as much money for my fundraising campaign for Bullying UK, through book and gift sales, as well as through generous donations from knitters for the fantastic Alan Dart knitting pattern.
Please consider making a donation to the fundraising campaign when you teceive the pattern; all donations will make a difference!
A donation of £2.00 makes a difference to 20 young people who are affected by bullying.
You can make a donation by clicking on my Justgiving widget on this page, or by visiting this link - Just Giving.

To get your copy of the pattern:
Please email me, and I will send you a pdf copy of Alan’s pattern. Please allow up to 24 hours for your pattern to be emailed to you.
We hope you enjoy knitting him, if you would like to be a part of our campaign by donating mini Percy’s to your local schools or youth groups, information can be found here.
Any donations to the anti-bullying campaign would be gratefully received, even a couple of pounds will make a difference to the charity Bullying UK, who we are raising funds for – will you help us reach our target?
