The Grimsby Evening Telegraph, that is.
For months members of The Sewing Clubs here in North East Lincolnshire have been beavering away making clothes and other items for premature and still-born babies. I contributed four crocheted wraps for very small or still-born babies.
It was a pet project of my friend Dawn, who runs the Immingham Sewing Clubs and is active in the Cleethorpes (St Peter’s) Sewing Club. The items were donated to the local maternity unit to help parents in need of suitable baby clothing for premature babies, or something to bury their still-born baby in. These items are desperately needed by maternity units across the country.
My gran is ever so proud of my involvement, and she and one of my aunties are busy knitting away at premmie baby sized cardigans to send in their own little donation parcel. The article in the paper will go in my grans file of clippings too.
