Comfort Cushions - sewing cushion covers out of favourite items of clothes

Comfort Cushions

EPC volunteers, working in the area of bereavement, collect the favourite articles of clothing from our carers and turn them into cushion covers.

These cushions become deeply valued items that hold so many memories.

They become the thing that can be held in those moments of grief.

 

‘I would like to express my gratitude to your volunteers and in particular Jane.  I gave her my late husband’s jumper and she made it into the most beautiful comfort cushion.  It is sitting in his chair for everyone passing to touch and stroke and remember him.  I can’t thank Jane enough for her kindness and your organsiation for providing such a service.’
