The group also knitted hand puppets for the WHH Charity, which will be given to children attending appointments and A&E, which will be used as distraction techniques for when they are receiving treatment. The knitting club has been keeping the Trust’s babies warm and snug for several years now and never fail to amaze us with their skills.
The group are avid knitters who made blankets, cardigans and hats for the little babies on the unit. Julia Austin, the nursery nurse on the unit went to the school to meet them and collect the knitwear commented,
“It is always lovely when we receive donations to the unit, but it is extra special when it is made by children. I really enjoyed visiting the school and seeing the children in action, they always make me feel very welcome and it is a testament to the staff and volunteers of the knitting club to see the same children year after year.”
