Can you knit or crochet? If so we need you!

Stoke Mandeville Spinal Research has teamed up with the National Spinal Injuries Centre to create a spectacular knitted spinal cord to reflect the importance of quality of life research.  We need your help to knit or crochet neurons to raise awareness of the complications of spinal cord injury. 

Get together with friends, knitting groups or encourage your children’s schools to take part.  All we ask is that you make a donation of any size to help support our vital research so that we can send you these unique knitting and crochet patterns.  

To make your donation and receive your knitting pattern, please visit

Alternatively, please send your donation to SMSR Knit a Neuron, National Spinal  Injuries Centre, Mandeville Road, Aylesbury, HP21 8AL and we will send you your Knit a Neuron pack! 

For any questions, and if you are unable to make a donation but would still like to take part, please contact Tel 01296 315255 or email
