3:00pm Monday 3rd March 2014 in Echo News
NEWBORN babies are snuggled up against the cold thanks to a group of knitters.
Willow Rose Finch, with parents Natalie and Luke, from Fobbing, was presented with a pink teddy by Stephanie Thompson, the guild’s handicraft co-ordinator.
Stephanie said: “We do a lot of work for charity, and were keen to do something for the hospital because most of us came here to have our babies.’’ Senior Sister Wendy Rogers said: “We are very grateful to the guild for these beautiful blankets and clothes.
“It can be a very anxious time for mums and dads on the unit and it is lovely for them to know others are thinking of them.”
