On April 27th we were asked to knit, crochet or sew Keepake blankets and make hearts for the end of life Covid 19 Ward F22 at the QMC Nottingham. Here are a few photographs taken before and on delivery of the Keepsake Blankets, Hearts and Owls made by Nottinghamshire WI Members and their friends. There were over 70 blankets delivered on Sunday May 10th and the Ward Sister was totally amazed at the response and sent a "massive thank you - even the colours make the world seem brighter" she said. More photos coming soon on Stop Press. A BIG THANK YOU TO EVERYONE.
