Knitting new friendships

The lovely ladies below form the knitting group at our St Judes home. Whilst they have the option to knit in the comfort of their rooms, they make the effort to catch up and knit together three times a week as a means of socialising and collaborating.

Our staff at the home bring them cake and coffee during their catch-ups and play some relaxing music in the background to compliment the mood.

Here they are preparing knitted bunnies for our upcoming Easter raffle!
