Knit and Knatter group donates to maternity unit
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.”
