This event will be a workshop for all ages, in which people can engage with activism through crafts. Based around our most recent campaign surrounding health in Sub-Saharan Africa. Materials will be provided for people to embroider their own handkerchief that will later be sent to MPs as a campaigning action.Younger audiences can take part in a postcard campaign, in which those not interested in sewing can design messages of protest to their MP.

These events will allow for the public to learn more about how the ONE Campaign combats extreme poverty around the world, with leaflets, badges and stickers.
