Could you knit or crochet a flower brooch?

As part of its partnership with the Inner Wheel, Parkinson’s UK will be selling brooches to raise funds at the Inner Wheel conference in Glasgow on 11 to 13 April 2016. But we need your help to create as many brooches as possible to make the most of this great opportunity.
