Carnew notes week December 21st


On Wednesday 16th December Laura Young from Crumlin Intensive Care from Crumlin Hospital called to Carnew Community Care to collect the knitted/crocheted items for the hospital.

She was delighted with what we had for her, mitts and bootees were very low and we had loads of blankets and cardigans and hats. Unfortunately due to the Covid restrictions no knitters could be present at the time.

On behalf of all the people who are so generously giving of their time and knitting skills and contributing in anyway to this most worthy cause, it is very much appreciated.
