A GROUP of pensioners have picked up their knitting needles to aid two good causes.

Anne Johnson, Doris Baker, Betty Haslam, and Joan Sorrell, who are all residents at Margaret House in Barley, have been busy knitting blankets for the special care baby unit at the Rosie Maternity Hospital.

Margaret Guzman, manager of Margaret House, said: "One of the ladies attends the Women's Institute, and they suggested that she should do some knitting for charity. She then got the others involved, and now they knit every day."

The group have been knitting together for the last six months.

Margaret added: "As well as blankets, they make hats for the babies, and squares for cat blankets, which are given to Wood Green Animal Shelter at Heydon.
