Low Furlong residents help babies in St Thomas’ Hospital Neonatal Unit

Our wonderful residents who make up the the Knitting Club at Low Furlong residential care home in Shipston-on-Stour, Warwickshire, have been busy knitting and crocheting bonding squares and hats for premature babies in the Neonatal Unit of St. Thomas' Hospital in London.

Bonding squares are pairs of 5 inch by 5 inch knitted or crochet squares, one is put with the poorly baby and the other is with the parent and then these are swapped over daily, and are considered crucial for premature babies as well as babies undergoing treatment, and parents who are separated at such a pressing time.

Here are our Low Furlong residents, Joyce Deering, Jeanette Davey and Mary Brown, busy creating hats and squares before sending them off to the babies being treated at St Thomas’ Hospital.
