Our Services

Hugs Knitathon

We provide Worcester Royal Hospital, Dudley’s Russell’s Hall Hospital and Walsall’s Manor Hospital with memory boxes that are given to the families following their loss. These boxes contain many beautiful items designed to help make precious memories within the short time they have together with their baby.

Two of the items we provide are blankets and hats. This is where you come in! Are you able to knit/crochet for us to help create these much needed boxes? There are patterns available to follow on the facebook page, see below, we will add more shortly, Lulluby Lodge has very kindly given us permission to use her pattern for our charity so a very big thank you to her. Feel free to use these or use your own. We need blankets approximately 28 inches square and in pastel colours – pink, blue, green, yellow, cream or lilac. Please stick to one colour or just a different colour boarder as we would like them fairly plain. We also need small baby hats again we currently have one pattern but more to follow.

Thank you so much for helping us, we know how much our boxes help bereaved parents because we have all received a box, which is why we strive to do what we can to help others.
