We would like to wish all our members, volunteers and customers a very happy Easter.

The good news is that we are hoping to reopen the coffee shop in the near future. Many thanks to our volunteers who have kindly said they will return and we will be contacting them again regarding our opening date shortly.

Calling all Knitters

Calling all knitters - and those who crochet
Category: General
Posted by: rosemary

A number of patients admitted to hospital can be disorientated  by the change in their surroundings.  The gift of a knitted, or crocheted blanket, shawl or "twiddle muff" can bring comfort and calm to someone who is confused or distressed.

Blankets varying in size, from knee blankets to single bed size, knitted or crocheted squares, shawls and twiddle muffs are all welcome. Once an item has been given to a patient, it is theirs to take home, so further donations are always needed.

If you don't have time to make an item, but have yarn that you no longer need (any colour or texture), we would be delighted to receive it, along with any knitting needles or crochet hooks.  Also ribbons, trim etc that may no longer be needed that can be used to decorate twiddle muffs. Sadly, we are unable to use buttons or beads.

Dolls, such as Tiny Tears, and doll's clothes are also welcome.

If you would kindly bring any donations to the League of Friends' office (adjacent to the Coffee Shop) we will be pleased to pass them on to the relevant nursing team.  Thank You.
