Knit and crochet bees and hedgehogs for The Honeypot Children's Charity

Since 1996 Honeypot has been working to enhance the lives of young carers aged 5-12 years by providing respite breaks and on-going outreach support. In the UK nationwide, we give young carers a break from demanding and stressful responsibilities at home and provide a safe, nurturing environment where children at risk can develop their full potential.

Our amazing Honeypot knitted bees are now being used not only in the community to raise awareness and funds for Honeypot, but are also being placed in the children’s memory bags! They take these home at the end of their annual residential respite break and been told it helps them remember Honeypot when they are looking after someone they love!

We also have a hedgehog pattern if you would like a challenge.

We have various patterns and all shapes or sizes are welcome!
