Knitted hats donated to Lincoln Hospital

Knitted hats

A Gainsborough sewing group has knitted dozens of hats ready for new-born babies.

The Sew Social club which meets regularly at the our Gainsborough Uphill Community Centre, has knitted and donated 65 hats to the Nettleham Ward at Lincoln County Hospital.

Lucy Picksley, our Community Engagement Coordinator, presented the hats to Matron for Inpatients Maternity Julie Bulteel. 

Julie said: “Hats like these are really helpful as babies lose a lot of heat from their head. The knitted hats will help keep the babies warm and at a reasonable temperature. We really appreciate the donation and want to say a huge thank you to everyone at the Sew Social for their help.”   

Lucy Picksley, member of Sew Social said: “We are a new group that was only set up in March but we are always keen to give something back to the community.  We felt that giving the knitted hats to Lincoln hospital could be an ideal starting project for our group because beginner knitters were able to join in too.  We are now trying to decide what to do next, we’d like to make some trauma teddies and we would like to encourage anyone if they’d like to get involved. We would also appreciate a simple donation of some wool or material.”

Sew social is an informal group for people to come along and share their skills amongst likeminded people.  The group is very much around skills swapping and sharing.  They meet once a month and share what they have done in that month and give each other a bit of support and encouragement.
