Knitting for new-borns

MORE than 50 sets of clothes for premature babies have been created by a dedicated knitter in Portishead.
For almost a year, Patricia Yaldon, who lives at Norewood Lodge Care Home, has been buying wool to transform into jackets and hats for tiny new-borns.
Her creations have then been donated to neo-natal units at St Michael’s Hospital in Bristol and East Surrey Hospital, which is near to where she grew up.
The 85-year-old has made more than 50 sets and says she will carry on until she has made 100.
Care home manager Lynne Millward said: “All of the staff here have been amazed by Patricia’s dedication and enthusiasm in fulfilling her personal goal.”
