Knitting for Scarborough Hospital’s Special Care Baby Unit

Scarborough Hall Care Home, North Yorkshire-Residents Jenny and Rachel and Magic Moments Club Assistant Jess presenting the premature baby hats to the care team at Scarborough Hospital

"We are always looking for new projects for our knitting group to help people in our local community.”

Residents at Scarborough Hall Care Home have visited the Special Care Baby Unit at Scarborough Hospital recently to present them with a box of their hand knitted premature baby hats.

Our community knitting group is made up of residents, their families and team members and throughout August and the beginning of September we have knitted a staggering 77 hats!

Residents Jenny and Rachel went along to Scarborough Hospital with Magic Moments Club Assistant Jess to hand over the hats to the care team there who were delighted to receive them.

Jess said “We were so pleased to help the baby unit and are always looking for new projects for our knitting group to help people in our local community.”

Huge thanks to our community knitting group members Eileen, Gabrielle, Lynsey, Liz, Skigh and Liz for all their wonderful knitting!

At Scarborough Hall we believe in living life to the full. That’s why we’re passionate about creating vibrant, stimulating activities that will help our residents to love every day. We call them ‘Magic Moments’.

Every brighterkind home now has a Magic Moments Club which provides a vast range of activities and fun things to do that are open to all of our residents. The idea behind Magic Moments is that just because someone moves into a care home doesn't mean that the things they love doing should suddenly stop – quite the contrary, we believe our residents should have the opportunity to love every day, by doing the things that they have always loved as well as trying new things along the way.
