Knit and Knat­ter group do­nates to ma­ter­nity unit

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

KNIT­TING en­thu­si­asts made baby clothes to do­nate to a ma­ter­nity unit.

The Knit and Knat­ter group at Sun­rise Se­nior Liv­ing, in Sta­tion Road, Bea­cons­field, pre­sented the items to two nurses from Stoke Man­dev­ille Ma­ter­nity Unit on Thurs­day, Novem­ber 13.

The items were knit­ted by peo­ple who take part in Sun­rise’s weekly Knit and Knat­ter group, where they learn new tech­niques.

Fol­low­ing the pre­sen­ta­tion to the nurses, ev­ery­one had a glass of cham­pagne and a themed cake, spe­cially baked to mark the oc­ca­sion.

The group was ini­tially or­gan­ised by Sun­rise’s life en­rich­ment man­ager Jade Bayly when she found out that a res­i­dent’s daugh­ter, Sue May, was a skilled knit­ter.

She said: “It was a par­tic­u­larly mean­ing­ful ex­pe­ri­ence for the group, as they were knit­ting for a good cause.

“They know that their items will be used by peo­ple who would ap­pre­ci­ate them. Noth­ing makes the Knit and Knat­ter ladies hap­pier.”
