Does anyone know where I might donate unwanted craft items, mainly knitting needles and wool? Thank you in advance.

“Knit and Natter” groups are very popular - my local one is in the Church and I think a group like this would be very glad of your offerings.
They knit angels for the Church Christmas Tree, crochet Royal Mail Box toppers and things like that for the Community.

Our local primary school always welcome this kind of donation so give your local school a try. Also charity shops will take craft items

Our local charity shop has a knitting section, very handy for various bits and bobs.

Our local library has a "knit & natter" group. They make things for charities and are always pleased to have donated wool - even small balls!

Any craft group. We put all the things we don't want into the middle of the table and help ourselves.
