Knitted from the heart

In January Becton Rotary Club resurrected the knitted hearts project with a view to meeting demand from local hospitals for fresh supplies.

Following publicity describing the initiative they received a very warm response from the public stating a great sense of purpose of wanting to help.

The end result was quite overwhelming with the following numbers of knitted hearts;

710 Knitted Hearts in total comprising;
  • Milford on Sea WI - 216
  • Rotary - 118
  • Friends - 376
A special mention must be given to 4 ladies, Christine, Kay, Judith and Penny who between them knitted over 200 hearts.

To date 400 hearts have been bagged into pairs and distributed to Southampton General Hospital, Royal Bournemouth Hospital, Lymington Hospital and Oakhaven hospice. The response expressed by the NHS for the delivery of these hearts has been very gratifying all stating what a vital contribution the Rotary have made in keeping patients hopes and love alive.
