The Nifty Knitters at Burnworthy House have been busy over the past few months knitting blankets to donate to worthy causes. This is the fourth year in a row that the South Petherton care home residents have donated knitted items to charity and they plan to do the same next year.
Pet lover and animal charity supporter, Jaqueline Hawkins Dunford came to collect the blankets and spoke with the residents about the types of charities she supports. The blankets will be shared out between St Giles Dog for Adoption, F.A.B Northamptonshire and Senior Staffy Club. The residents were delighted to hear that their knitting skills would be appreciated by dogs from across the country.
Jackie Howells, Manager at Burnworthy House, said: “Our Nifty Knitters group is so popular at Burnworthy House. They love getting together and knitting items for a good cause and having a chat about current events. This is the fourth year that they’ve supported animal charities with their knitting and I’m so pleased and proud that they plan to do the same next year.”
