We provide Memory Boxes to the Royal United Hospital, Bath which help families to create memories with their little one in the short time that they have to spend together. The large boxes include a hand knitted blanket and the mini boxes, which are for earlier losses, include a mini blanket and an Angel Pocket. These are all knitted locally, but we are in desperate need of more.

If you can’t knit but would like to help, we are grateful for any donations of white double knit or 4-ply wool which we can give to local knitters to make our blankets.
