We are delighted to report that our fantastic Knitting Club has a new project and it couldn’t be for a better cause. Led by three Year 5 & 6 girls, Chanel, Kelly and Hannah, the children in Knitting Club have been working hard to knit little blankets, hats and soft toys for premature babies at the Luton and Dunstable Hospital.
It was the girls’ own idea and their friends were more than happy to help. The girls explained, ‘Chanel’s mum usually makes a donation to the unit and she suggested maybe we would like to donate something. We decided that we would make things in Knitting Club to donate. We have been putting the blankets, hats and soft toys in bundles like gift packs for the babies. We’ve been knitting in all our spare time! So far we’ve made ten packs but we will keep going and are hoping to make it a regular thing. Every month or term, one of our mums will drop in the gifts we have made to the hospital.’
We are so proud of all the children involved and wish them well with such a worthwhile project.
