The resident knitting club at Melbourne House is in full stitch as residents pick up their needles to knit vital blankets needed for premature and sick babies at the Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust Neonatal Unit.
Care Home Manager at Melbourne House Care Home, Alicja Szefler says: “The Hospital’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit specialises in treating and caring for premature and sick newborn babies. Premature babies loose body heat really quickly so we thought we’d put our knitting talents to good use and make blankets to keep the babies snug and warm.”
