Blankets to keep children in one of the world’s poorest countries warm have been knitted by Royston’s Townswomen’s Guild.
The blankets were knitted for the Addis Ababa Fitsula Hospital in Ethiopia, which provides care for women who suffer from Fitsula - a condition common in the developing world.
The blankets were put on show during the group’s April meeting at the town hall.
The Royston branch of the Townswomen’s Guild is celebrating its 50th year of service to the community, and welcomed guests from other guild branches.
The ladies were treated to an informative talk by Avril Williams, a volunteer for the Friends of the Rosie Hospital, Cambridge, who spoke on the evolution of the maternity hospital since its conception at Mill Road, Cambridge in 1980.
