From the Heart
At this challenging time when COVID-19 is affecting so many people, NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde are looking at ways their nursing and midwifery staff can support families following the death of their loved one.
A small token may bring them some comfort so an appeal has gone out to the knitting community to knit small hearts that can be offered to bereaved families, and to patients who can't receive visitors.
Knitters are asked to use clean wool and to deliver the hearts in re-sealable plastic bags clearly marked with the date, so that staff can store them in a safe place for five days before use.
This is a project that could keep us all occupied and may be a good way to get the kids started on knitting! Simple free to use patterns can be found here
