Granny’s Finest

Granny’s Finest is an organisation that runs handicraft clubs for elderly people. In this way, they can pursue their hobby while helping reduce a major problem among the elderly – loneliness. Products such as scarves , hats and gloves are designed by young creative talents, while the clubs also offers an opportunity for both young and elderly people to get to know each other.

Thanks to the efforts and commitment of about 20 volunteers, there are already many handicraft clubs established in the Netherlands. Fonds Schiedam Vlaardingen has contributed to the founding of two handicraft clubs in Vlaardingen (Hoylede) and in Maassluis – (De Tweemaster) .
