Lea Court staff and supported people knit together for Warrington hospital

Staff and those we support at Alternative Future’s Group Lea Court independent hospital, Warrington, have presented knitted and crocheted blankets to Warrington General Hospital’s neo-natal unit.

A total of about ten staff and service users got stuck into the task just after Christmas – producing items including blankets, hats and mittens.

Occupational therapist Lynne Hardy explained: “Once we have a bundle we take them to the hospital. We make it fun with knit and natter and chill and crochet sessions. We came away with lots of thanks and more orders so we’re going to continue to be busy!”

Staff from Warrington General hospital and Lea Court are pictured with two of the supported people who helped to knit the donated items.
