Local machine knitting group make special donation to Coronary Care
Representatives from Nuneaton Central Machine Knitting Club visited the Coronary Care Team to donate specialist stools to help patients within the ward.
Knitter, Doreen Crutchlow had spent a few weeks as a patient in the ward recently and wanted to support other patients in the ward. Patients had suggested that stools would help them feel more comfortable sitting out of bed during their stay.
The group regularly raise money for local charities through coffee mornings, coach trips and raffles. They have also knitted items for babies and the Help for Heroes Charity in the past.
Doreen said: “From arrival by ambulance to discharge my treatment was second to none so this donation is a thank you gesture to all the lovely staff at the George Eliot.”
Funding Coordinator, Jean Whittaker MBE said: “On behalf of the George Eliot Hospital, especially the Coronary Care Unit, we would like to thank Doreen and the knitting group for their continued support to our unit.
“We really appreciate their dedication and contributions to enhance the care of the patients that attend our coronary care unit.”
The Central Machine Knitters Club meets on the first and third Thursday of each month at Hatters Space, Upper Abbey Street, Nuneaton from 7pm to 9pm.
