Camouflage helmet covers for Ukraine

Support the making of camouflage helmet covers to send to Ukraine and help save the lives of Ukrainian defenders.

In the summer of 2023, Alison Marshall spent several weeks in Lviv working as a volunteer. One of the jobs she did was to help produce camouflage nets and helmet covers. 

All over Ukraine, there are groups working in colleges, churches and community centres, to make these essential items. Most groups work on large nets, stretched across big frames to help disguise tanks or troop emplacements. For those that can't easily work on these large projects, individual helmet covers are also needed, which can be made at home by individuals and small groups.

A request was sent to previous volunteers to make them in their home country. Alison saw this as a golden opportunity for people in Settle to contribute. The technique is simple - weaving small strips into a net, which is afterwards removed from the frame and tied with elastic. All that is required is time and a supply of materials. A group has been formed, including many people with crafting skills as well as those less experienced, who are aiming to make at least 100 helmet covers for Ukraine.

We need to raise money for the fabric, netting and other components, as well as for transport costs to Lviv. We meet at Settle Victoria Hall, or people can work at home.

The project operates in connection with Settle Supports Ukraine and by_porokhova, Lviv.
