We’re appealing for knitted or crocheted 18inch blankets to donate to Newcastle hospitals for premature babies. This is a cause very close to our hearts and we would be so appreciative and grateful to anyone who is able to make a blanket. We will be collecting them at the next meeting (19th February, 12:30-2:30pm at The Oxford Centre, Longbenton, NE12 8LT).
Thank you all for the support shown for this cause already, we’ve had pictures of people starting their balnkets, and we’ve even had a member put up a poster in her local wool shop, you’re all so amazing! If you cant knit, you could always pass on the info to someone who can and see if they would be able to make one.
