Knit for our AGM

At our AGM on September 1st, we will be having a Guest speaker. Kathy M will be telling us about the work that SANDS (Stillbirth and Neonatal Death Society) does in our area.

SANDS supports parents by amongst other things giving them blankets and hats for their child during a very difficult time. The parents then keep the blankets and hats if they wish so unfortunately there is a constant need for more.

During the next few weeks and longer, please could you spare a bit of yarn and knit a blanket or baby hat for us to give to Kathy. The blankets can be any size from A4 upwards and the hats from doll size to first size baby. They don't have to be white either, they can be any colour, hand or machine knitted or crochet if you prefer. Whatever you can make they will be pleased to receive so bring it to the September meeting. Thank you.

If you would like to know more about what SANDS does visit either the local website at or the national website at
