A sincere thank you to everyone who is knitting/crochet blankets, cardigans, hats, mitts and bootees for the premature babies.

Laura Young from Crumlin came last week and collected these items and was delighted with the amount of items that she collected and she said that the joy these give to mothers is unbelievable, she said it’s a small bit of comfort to mothers who’s babies are born premature.
