Knitters seek wool to help provide Ray of Hope for babies
A GROUP of Knutsford women are appealing for wool so they can continue to make clothes and blankets for patients at Leighton Hospital.
The group, called Knutsford Knitters, which has seven members, has been meeting for the past nine months for a natter and knit while they create cardigans for premature babies, as part of the Ray of Hope appeal, and blankets for people who have suffered from a stroke.
Longridge resident Rowena Acton, who started knitting again after 30 years, said: “It’s a lovely couple of hours, where we all have a cuppa and a chat while we knit.”
Fellow member Suzanne Lerch said: “It’s great fun and we make beautiful things.
“If one of us makes a mistake we help each other out, and we’re always learning new things.”
The volunteers meet every Tuesday between 1pm and 3pm, at The Welcome Cafe or The Open House on Longridge.
Donations of wool can be dropped off at The Welcome Cafe for Beryl Jenyons, and more information about joining the group is available from Alex Barker on 0161 447 5117 or 07917 527280.
