Two residents at Lyncroft Care Home in Wisbech made a special delivery this week to help keep premature and ill newborn babies warm.
Madaline Medler, 90, and Vera Sooley, 88, who have been busy knitting tiny hats and blankets, visited the neonatal intensive care unit at Peterborough City Hospital.
Vera said: “We love knitting. It keeps us busy and it’s for the babies.”
Accompanied by home manager Jan Davison and administrator Shirley Cousins, Madaline and Vera delivered a large box of colourful blankets and hats to the unit.
They were met by Esther and Mags, nurses from the NICU, who explained how grateful they were for the donation.
